Rossini, Aaron

    Research in the Rossini group aims at developing solid-state NMR methods for the structural characterization of inorganic materials, heterogeneous catalysts and solid pharmaceuticals. In particular, dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) and indirect detection methods are used to enhance the sensitivity and resolution of solid-state NMR experiments with exotic and unreceptive nuclei. Aaron Rossini completed his PhD studies in September 2010 at the University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario, Canada, under the supervision of Prof. Robert W. Schurko. In 2011 he moved to Lyon, France to work with Prof. Lyndon Emsley and Dr. Anne Lesage at the Centre de Resonance Magnetique Nucleaire à Très Haut Champs (CRMN Lyon) at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon (ENS Lyon) as a Marie Curie International Incoming Fellow. In October 2014 he moved to École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland to continue working with Prof. Emsley. In August 2015, he moved to Ames, Iowa to join the Department of Chemistry at Iowa State University as an Assistant Professor. He is also affiliated to the US Department of Energy Ames Laboratory as a faculty scientist. He was officially appointed as an Associate Professor with tenure in August 2021. In August 2023 he was promoted to Full Professor.
