Michael was born in New Jersey, eventually finding his way to Poughkeepsie, NY to attend Marist for his BS in Biochemistry at Marist College, graduating in 2019. There he worked studying the photophysics of solvatochromic organic donor-acceptor molecules under the supervision of Dr. Jocelyn M. Nadeau. He attended North Carolina State University and joined the Castellano Group as a graduate student studying  the photophysical dynamics and fundamentals of Cu(I)-based bis-phenanthroline chromophores, eventually graduating with his PhD in 2024. Currently, he is continuing and finishing up his graduate research as a Postdoctoral Research Scholar. In his free time, Michael is an avid sports fan who enjoys going to hockey games and going to the gym after work.
