Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology
Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology
Faculty of Arts and Sciences
Jarad Mason earned B.S. and M.S. degrees at the University of Pennsylvania, then obtained his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 2015 under the guidance of Jeffrey Long. Following graduate school, he was a Dan David Prize and International Institute for Nanotechnology postdoctoral fellow with Chad Mirkin at Northwestern University. In January 2018, Jarad will begin his independent career as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University. His research group will apply the tools of coordination chemistry, materials science, and nanotechnology to the synthesis of materials that address basic science challenges in energy and sustainable development. A particular emphasis will be on the development of chemical strategies to manipulate entropy, phase transitions, and porosity at different length scales in new classes of inorganic-organic materials.
