FRONTIERS IN METAL OXIDE CLUSTER SCIENCE
August 19-22, 2019
FMOCS VI Chair
May Nyman holds a BSc in Geology, MSc in Materials Science and Engineering (both from Virginia Tech) and a PhD in Chemistry (University of New Mexico). After PhD, May stayed in New Mexico for 14.5 years working at Sandia National Labs where she achieved the highest rank of Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff. Since 2012, May has been a professor of Chemistry at Oregon State University. She entered the international POM community with her pioneering work in polyoxoniobate chemistry. Current interests and expertise include role of clusters and pre-nucleation clusters in metal oxide growth (bulk, nanomaterials, nanopatterns, and thin films), actinide clusters and materials, nuclear waste management, X-ray scattering, aqueous speciation, and metal-oxo clusters from across the periodic table.
