Ali Akil

Research assistant: USC (2016 to 2019)

Chromophore-solvent interactions and effects on ultrafast dynamics were investigated via:

• Synthesis of organic chromophores

• Steady-state and ultrafast spectroscopic studies

• Quantum chemical modeling

Target applications in semiconductor devices

Supplementary Instruction Leader: CSULB (2014 to 2016) I led a course supplementary to organic chemistry wherein I taught students the course material along with learning and organizational methods.

2019 Chemistry M.S., University of Southern California (GPA = 3.9) 2016 Chemistry B.S., Cal State Long Beach (GPA = 3.9) 2016 Physics B.A., Cal State Long Beach (GPA = 3.9) Highly motivated chemist seeking employment with many skills to offer including synthesis, spectroscopy, computational modeling, and semiconductors. I have a broad skill set and am always looking to expand my arsenal and sharpen my existing skills. I have designed and developed a project from theoretical work to experiments at the synchrotron source at Argonne National Lab. Overall, this project involved organic synthesis, various spectroscopic methods (steady-state and ultrafast), and quantum chemical computation. This project allowed me to harness and enhance several skills including leadership, teamwork, and critical thinking. I also have extensive experience in synthesizing organic chromophores for use in semiconductor electronics (solar cells and OLEDs).
