Kerry Gilmore's Biography

Kerry Gilmore, Assistant Professor, University of Connecticut

Kerry grew up in Brewster, Massachusetts and attended Roger Williams University for undergrad. He received his Ph.D. in 2012 from Florida State University studying cyclization reactions, during which time he was a Fulbright Scholar. He then moved to the Max-Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces for postdoctoral work, and was group leader of the flow chemistry group from 2014-2020. In 2020 he moved to the University of Connecticut where he is an Assistant Professor. His current research interests include the development of technology and approaches to advance methodologies of small molecule synthesis, as well as to utilize computational methods and machine learning to better understand and predict the selectivity of organic reactions.

With an ever-increasing mastery over the methods of bond formation and functional group transformation, what is the next stage of development for organic chemists? In this talk, we will discuss how the role of a chemist is shifting away from the instrument that performs the reactions to what we chemists are trained for – analysis, constructing understanding, and extrapolating from both an experimental and conceptual level. The two key tools being integrated that will drive this shift are automation and machine learning. We will discuss how automated instrumentation can and should be developed, aimed at complementarity and connectedness as opposed to “one ring to rule them all”. We will also look to the use of machine learning to predict complex, sensitive processes – but from a broader, not reaction specific, perspective. Finally, we’ll touch on how these tools can be made accessible and integrated to achieve rapid development in a site-independent manner.
