Dr. Antaeres Antoniuk-Pablant
Dr. Antaeres Antoniuk-Pablant is a research scientist with a focus on artificial photosynthesis via organic chemistry, photochemistry, catalysis, and analytical chemistry. She received her BS from UC Santa Cruz in Chemistry with a focus on environmental chemistry, and subsequently worked in three analytical chemistry labs at the university. She received her PhD in Organic Chemistry from Arizona State University in 2015, where she designed, synthesized, characterized, and studied organic dyes for research on dye sensitized solar cells. She did her postdoctoral studies at Stanford University where she investigated new methods for converting CO2 to useful chemicals or fuels though developing new platforms for combing electrochemical CO2 reduction and microbial metabolism.
