Corey Pilgrim , graduate student,

Corey finished his undergraduate degree at the University of Washington in Seattle in 2007. After earning a B.S. in chemistry, he went to work as an analytical chemist at GigOptix, Inc. for 6 years. On joining the Casey group in January 2014, Corey hopes to study uranium and transuranic complexes in aqueous solutions to further understand dynamics of structure and conformation.
