PhD, Boston College (2014)
Honors B.S. in Chemistry with Distinction, University of Delaware (2007)
Postdoctoral Researcher at ETZ Zürich with Prof. Christophe Copéret (2014-2016).
Professor Silverio received his B.S. in chemistry in 2007 from the University of Delaware. He wrote a undergraduate thesis under the direction of Professor Douglass F. Taber titled “New Methods for the Deprotection of Aryl Mesylates." He received his PhD in organic chemistry from Boston College in 2014. There he worked under the advisement of Professor Amir H. Hoveyda in the field of enantioselective catalysis. His thesis was titled “Development of Amino Acid-Derived Ligands for Enantioselective Synthesis of Amines and Alcohols.” Following the completion of his PhD, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at ETH-Zürich in the group of Professor Christophe Copéret, where he studied and synthesized materials for use in dynamic nuclear polarization. He has been an assistant professor at Adelphi University since 2017, where his group studies the synthesis and solubility profiles of hypervalent iodides, new methods to synthesize nitriles, and the development and assessment of new pedagogical tools for teaching organic chemistry.
