Sean is an Professor of Chemistry at Boston University, and a member of the Molecular Biology, Biochemistry and Cell Biology (MCBB) and Bioinformatics Programs.
He started his career as an undergraduate of Amherst College with degrees in Chemistry and English. With the former, he worked with Prof. Joan Broderick in the area of synthetic bioinorganic chemistry. He was a graduate student with Prof. Sunney I. Chan at Caltech in the field of biophysical chemistry, and then followed that with an EMBO-sponsored Post-doctoral Fellowship with Prof. Fraser Armstrong at the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory, University of Oxford. He is still fascinated by how metalloenzymes couple protons and electrons and chemical events to make and break bonds.
Sean is originally from Tucson, AZ. Sometimes he runs. He was sorted into Ravenclaw, but chose Gryffindor. He spends too much on twitter as @prof_sje.
