Schreiner University’s next Crate Lecture will feature alumnus Dr. Tristan Adamson on November 7 from 6:30 to 8 the Moody Science Building, Room 106. The event is free and open to the public.

Adamson, who is a Research Scientist in the Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Division at Southwest Research Institute, will discuss his work in organic, organometallic, and inorganic synthesis, computational modeling for pharmaceutical discovery, and catalyst development for carbon dioxide utilization.

After graduating from Schreiner University in 2018 as a Valedictorian Finalist, Adamson went on to earn his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Missouri in February 2023.

The Harry Crate Lecture Series was established in the 1990s and is named in memory of Harry Crate, a former Schreiner University Math and Engineering Professor. Its purpose is to highlight student engagement in the technical ideas of the time, and past speakers have included Nobel laureates, influencers, and Schreiner University graduates.
