Eric Matthew Villa, PhD

Associate Professor

Research Focus

One of our primary interests is in the synthesis, characterization and reaction dynamics of polyoxometalate ions (POMs) in water, which includes the relationship between the solid-state and solution properties of POMs and isotopic-oxygen-exchange reactions of POMs in water. We are also interested in the synthesis and characterization of lanthanide materials. Here we explore periodic trends within lanthanide compounds and the structure-function relationships & utilization of solid-state properties of these materials.
