Curtis E. Moore
Dr. Moore serves as the Director of the Crystallography Facility. He received his PhD in Chemistry from Wichita State University in 2007 while working in the group of Dr. David Eichhorn. From 2009-2015 he served as the Manager of the Facility. His specialties include student instruction, crystallization of problematic molecules, twinning, complex disorder problems, and diffractometer maintenance and repair.
Dr. Gembicky works as a Crystallographer in the Facility. He received his PhD in Chemistry from Slovak Technical University in 2001 while working in the group of Dr. Roman Boca. From 2002-2009 he worked with Dr. Phil Coppens at SUNY-Buffalo doing advanced crystallographic studies on excited state molecules. From 2009-2015 he worked for Bruker-AXS as a Global Field Application Specialist. His specialties include all aspects of diffractometer service (installation, modification, maintenance, and repair), optimal data acquisition strategies, synchrotron data collections, and twinning.
