Randi Gbur


Raised in Fayetteville, AR but a true Texan at heart, Randi attended the University of Texas at Arlington where she earned a B.S. in biochemistry and a minor in physics while carrying out undergraduate research on the total synthesis and biological testing of marine alkaloids.  She then moved to sunny Santa Barbara where she obtained her Ph.D. in chemistry, with an emphasis in physical organic chemistry and organic electrochemistry, under the tutelage of Prof. R. Daniel Little.  Her postdoctoral work in the Hawker group involves developing new monomers for microelectronic materials.
