Amymarie Bartholomew

Amymarie K. Bartholomew joins Yale as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry. Her research focuses on the design and synthesis of inorganic materials with stimuli-responsive properties. In particular, her group aims to create novel materials that allow external stimuli such as changes in temperature, pressure, or incident light to control electronic and thermal transport, magnetic order, and even physical motion. These target materials have applications in nanotechnology, ultrathin and transparent electronics, and solar energy capture, and their synthesis will advance understanding of the principles of molecular design for the control of switchable properties. Bartholomew received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Harvard University in the laboratory of Prof. Ted Betley and holds a B.S. in Chemistry from Yale University. Before joining the faculty at Yale, she worked with Prof. Xavier Roy at Columbia University as an Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellow in the Chemical Sciences.
