Nick Cowper, G5
Nick grew up on a small island in British Columbia, Canada, which is how he came to be such a good swimmer. He gained an interest in chemistry through research in organometallics and catalysis. Nick graduated from Queen's University with a Bachelors in Chemistry in 2010. After college, he worked at Genentech before coming to Caltech. He joined the Reisman Lab in 2012, where he has focused on natural product total synthesis. When Nick is not in the lab, he enjoys drinking bourbon, grilling, brewing coffee, jumping in cold bodies of water, and sleeping under the stars.
