C. Eugene Bennett Department of Chemistry in the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences
Brian V. Popp received his B.S. and M.S. in chemistry at Wright State University where he studied under Vladimir Katovic. He then earned his Ph.D. in chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison under the mentorship of Shannon Stahl in the area of mechanistic inorganic/organometallic chemistry. He moved to Rice University as a J. Evans Attwell-Welch Postdoctoral Fellow in the research group of Zachary Ball, where he gained a new perspective on organometallic catalysis by developing enzyme-like approaches for site-selective peptide and protein modification. He has been a tenure-track assistant professor in the C. Eugene Bennett Department of Chemistry in the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences since 2011. His group is focused on developing innovative chemical and biological transformations to access molecules with potential applications to human health.
