email: csosnof at falcon.bgsu.edu

Chris is an undergraduate student at BGSU who is working toward a Bachelor’s in biochemistry.

Graduate Students:

Anton O. Razgoniaev

email: arazgon at bgsu.edu.

Anton graduated in 2012 with a Specialist Degree in Chemistry from St. Petersburg State University in St. Petersburg, Russia. His previous research was focused on identification of phenol alkylation products using GC/MS. He worked with Dr. Igor G. Zenkevich. Now he is interested in synthesis of lanthanide nanocrystals and metal nanoparticles on polymer films.

Giuseppe E. Giammaco

email: giusepg at bgsu.edu

In 2006 Giuseppe received his licentiate in chemistry, cum laude, from Universidad de los Andes, Venezuela. He then pursued a research Master degree in "Polymers and Biopolymers" at the School for Industrial Engineering, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain; where he graduated in 2009. In 2012, after some work experience, Giuseppe is now starting his PhD studies in the Center for Photochemical Sciences at BGSU.

Undergraduate Students:

Jon D. Mase

email: jmase at falcon.bgsu.edu

Jon is working toward his Bachelor’s degree in biochemistry at BGSU.


Megan K. Tschirhart; graduate student, 2012-2013

Dayana A. Muizzi

email: dmuizzi at bgsu.edu

Dayana graduated as licentiate in chemistry in 2011 from Universidad Simon Bolivar, Venezuela.  Her research was focused on the synthesis of heterocyclic compounds with potential biological activity as DNA intercalators. She also previously studied some photochemical properties of Patent Blue V. At present she is interested in the synthesis of NO releasing polymers.

Though located in the heart of the Midwest in Bowling Green, Ohio, we are a diverse, international group.  Dr. Ostrowski is an American, but spent part of her life living in Asia. Students in the group come from South America, the United States, and Europe. With influences from 4 different continents, we enjoy the fresh perspective that this diversity brings to our group.

Anastasia Tikhomirova

email: atikhom at bgsu.edu

Anastasia received her Bachelor Degree in Chemistry in summer 2013 at St. Petersburg State University, Russia. Her research towards was performed at the Department of Inorganic Chemistry and was dedicated to phase equilibria in ternary Cobalt complex systems. Her project concerned both physical and inorganic chemistry aspects of the behavior of such systems. She is now starting her research towards PhD degree at Bowling Green State University
