Rory Waterman

Assistant Professor of Chemistry

Rory Waterman, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, is an inorganic chemist with interests in organometallic chemistry and catalysis. His research will investigate the areas of metal-ligand multiple bonding, element - hydrogen bond activation, and unique processes such as alpha-elimination. Elements that span the periodic table will be employed for new reactivity. In addition to his teaching interests in inorganic and organometallic chemistry, Dr. Waterman is also promoting the idea of science literacy, or a general understanding of scientific research, among nonscience majors

A New England native, Dr. Waterman joins the UVM faculty after two years in Berkeley as a Miller Research Fellow at the University of California. He earned his Ph.D. in chemistry in 2004 at the University of Chicago.
