Jeff was born in Spokane, WA. During his time at Washington State University, under the mentorship of James K. Hurst, he investigated bacterial DNA modification by hypochlorous acid produced by human neutrophils. Jeff moved to Seattle in 2005 and began his Ph.D. work with James M. Mayer. Among other topics, he investigated proton-coupled electron transfer reactions of organic and inorganic models of biomolecules. In 2010, Jeff joined Harry B. Gray's research group at the California Institute of Technology as an NIH Postdoctoral Scholar. He investigated multiple-step electron transfer reactions in artificial proteins. In September 2013, Jeff joined the faculty at Simon Fraser University where he continues to be very excited about biological and inorganic chemistry!
