About

Lucas was born and raised in Tampa, Florida where he also obtained his B.S. in molecular biology from the University of South Florida. Lucas became exposed to chemistry during undergraduate research in Prof. Jon Antilla’s lab. The research focused on the organocatalyzed enantioselective hydroboration of linear enones. Upon joining the Sarlah group at UIUC Lucas began working on exciting dearomatization strategies. Outside the lab, Lucas enjoys eating, reading, and spending time with his wife.
