Dr. Jason Keleher

Dr. Keleher (better known around Lewis as Dr. K) is Professor and Chair of the Department of Chemistry at Lewis University. He holds a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from Clarkson University in Potsdam New York. Outside of the classroom and research laboratory Dr. K is a die-hard fan of  Clarkson University Golden Knights Hockey and the New York Yankees but most importantly enjoys (most of the time) a “relaxing” round of golf.

Thesis Title: Unraveling Key Mechanistic Interactions Relevant to Pre- and Post-Chemical Mechanical Planarization Processes 

 

Words of Wisdom:  Being given the chance to continue to work with the Keleher Research Group is an exciting opportunity as the science continues to emerge! Seeing the many projects grow beyond just an idea is rewarding because a lot of the work we do is science to serve humanity! 

Brian Sherry

Design & Development Engineer at Deep Coat Industries

MS Chemistry  (2018 Lewis University)

DK Lab Alumni

 

Thesis Title: Characterizing CeO2 Valence State Influence on TEOS Interactions during Shallow Trench Isolation Chemical Mechanical Planarization

 

Collaboration Description:  As a “Design and Development Engineer” my role ensures the production line can efficiently and economically coat components exactly to customer specifications for shielding, masking lines, plating thickness, and plating adhesion. To meet these requirements for our customers, I design the custom fixtures that hold their parts and optimize layout and orientation to increase throughput. Also, I oversee the development of all internal manufacturing goals/equipment such as thermoforming, 3D printing, injection molding, and automation of sandblasting equipment.
