Arun received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the Johns Hopkins University in 2016. There, he worked under the guidance of Prof. John D. Tovar, investigating the magnetic behavior of methanoannulene-based Kekulé diradicals. He began his graduate studies in chemistry at MIT in the summer of 2017, working in the research group of Prof. Christopher Cummins. Arun is currently researching how carboxamide-based cryptands can effect the catalytic generation of hydrogen peroxide, a potential solar fuel.
