M.Sc. Juha Hurmalainen

Juha Hurmalainen

Juha obtained his M.Sc. at the University of Jyväskylä in 2012 after which he continued in the inorganic chemistry Ph.D. program. In his Ph.D. project, Juha focuses on group 13 chemistry and uses both experimental and computational methods in his research. At present, his work revolves around redox active ligands and main group radicals. During the academic year 2014-2015, Juha was staying at the Saint Mary's University with the help of generous research funding from the Academy of Finland.
