Hello and thanks for viewing my intern profile! My name is Jackson Burns and I am a rising senior at the University of Delaware studying chemical engineering and computer science. At my home institution I focus on the development of novel chemical transformations related to transition metal-catalyzed coupling under the guidance of Prof. Don Watson. Here at MIT I am working with Prof. Connor Coley on autonomous optimization — integrating machine learning and robotics into a typical chemistry workflow. Outside of class I enjoy reading, playing chess, and rock climbing.
