Biography

Dr. Fort started at St. Thomas in 2010 and specializes in organic chemistry. He has a passion for discovering and sharing how chemistry affects our daily life.

Dr. Fort was appointed as the Director of the Aquinas Scholars Honors Program at St. Thomas in 2018.  For more information on this community of scholars, see: www.stthomas.edu/aquinasscholars

Professional Interests

Research in the Fort lab focuses on the synthesis and reactivity of unique aromatic systems. Our projects aim to rationally design structures that have new and interesting properties by combining computational chemistry with organic synthesis. Many of the molecules we work with may some day find applications in organic electronic devices or in imaging of biological systems.

If you are interested in joining the research group, contact Dr. Fort.
