About Quinton


Quinton was born in Barrie, Ontario, but spent his formative years growing up in the suburbs of Atlanta. In 2016, he received a B.S. in Biochemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he worked with Prof. Jake Soper researching base metal catalysis. Afterwards, Quinton pursued his Ph.D. studies with Prof. Alexander Miller at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as an NSF Graduate Research Fellow. There, he interrogated mechanisms of dinitrogen functionalization and the intricacies of hydrogen activation and hydride transfer reactions. After completing his doctoral studies in 2021, Quinton continued moving back up the east coast for a postdoctoral stint with Prof. Alexander Radosevich at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as an NIH Postdoctoral Fellow investigating how spectator organometallic fragments could be used to tune phosphorus catalysts. In 2023, Quinton began his independent career in the Department of Chemistry at Stony Brook University as an Assistant Professor.

Outside of the lab, Quinton enjoys baking with his wife, testing local craft beer, a good book, and cheering on his beloved Yellow Jackets.
