Stefan Malone Cooper Jr. is native of Sumter, South Carolina. He obtained a B.S. in chemistry from College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina and Ph.D. in synthetic organic chemistry from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His dissertation is entitled: “Trans-Positioning” carbons within strained caged bicyclic(s): ROM/RCM (Ring-opening/Ring-closing) metathesis and Dieckmann/retro-Dieckmann condensation routes to a cis-declain infrastructure.” Dr. Cooper conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland, under Dr. Herman O. Sintim. In January 2016, he joined Hampton-Brandesis’s (PREM) Partnership for Research and Education in Materials as a Path to Professorship (PTP) fellow. Current work is in developing photosensitive micelles for drug delivery application.
