Dr. Weber teaches lectures and laboratories in Organic Chemistry at Appalachian State University. After receiving his diploma in chemistry from Heidelberg University, Germany in 2009, he earned his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry in 2012 under the supervision of Michel R. Gagné. Dr. Weber returned to Germany for his postdoctoral studies in the research group of Alois Fürstner at the Max-Planck Institute for Coal Research. In 2015 he joined the chemistry department at Appalachian State University as a lecturer and was promoted to an Assistant Professor in 2017.
Dr. Weber’s research focuses on sustainable organic synthesis guided by the principles of green chemistry. He currently has several ongoing research projects centered on microwave-assisted organic reactions, the application of biocatalysis in organic synthesis, the design of cascading/tandem/one-pot reactions, and on the development of new experiments for organic teaching laboratories.
