Interview with Julian G. West

This Young Career Focus presents Julian G. West (Rice University, USA).

Julian West received his B.Sc.H. in chemistry from the University of British Columbia Vancouver (Canada), studying photodecarboxylations. Next, he pursued his Ph.D. as an NSF Graduate Research Fellow at Princeton (USA), investigating photocatalytic reactions using earth-abundant elements. Finally, he was an NIH and Resnick Postdoctoral Fellow at Caltech (USA), where he investigated inorganic chemistry and electrocatalysis. Julian joined Rice University (USA) in July 2019 as an assistant professor of chemistry, where he and his group have been captivated by the possibilities of free radicals in catalysis. His group seeks to develop a broad collection of useful reactions, and many projects come from exciting student ideas. Julian and his group have been recognized by awards including the NIH Maximizing Investigator’s Research Award, the ACS PRF Doctoral New Investigator Award, a CPRIT Scholar in Cancer Research Award and being named on the 2021 Forbes 30 Under 30 – Science list.
