Megan Fieser Profile Picture

About the Speaker:


Dr. Megan Fieser is currently a Gabilan Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the University of Southern California.

Megan received a B.A. in chemistry at Washington University in St. Louis, while also playing on the softball team (Go Bears!) She went on to earn her Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California, Irvine, working with Bill Evans on the “Spectroscopic and Computational Analysis of Rare Earth and Actinide Complexes in Unusual Coordination Environments and Oxidation States”. She then moved to pursue postdoctoral studies with Prof. Bill Tolman at the University of Minnesota within the NSF Center for Sustainable Polymers. There she collaborated with Prof. Geoff Coates and Prof. Chris Cramer on mechanistic studies of the perfectly alternating copolymerization of epoxides and cyclic anhydrides with an aluminum catalyst and PPNCl co-catalyst.

Megan started as a Gabilan Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the University of Southern California in 2018. Outside of the lab, Megan loves most things outdoors, such as walking/running with her dogs, biking and hiking. She is also a huge fan of brunch and the St. Louis Cardinals.


Researchers in the Fieser group are interested in the design of molecular catalysts for the polymerization of degradable polymers and/or the depolymerization of commercial, non-degradable polymers.
