Dr. Zeller

Matthias Zeller is Crystallographer and Manager of the Purdue X-ray diffraction laboratory. A native of Bamberg, Germany, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Erlangen Nuremberg where he investigated the degree to which phosphorous(III) can replace carbon atoms in organic and metal organic chemistry.

After a postdoctoral fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology he joined Youngstown State University, where he became instrumental in the establishment of the Starburstt consortium, a nationwide organization for the promotion of X-ray diffraction techniques predominantly at undergraduate institutions in teaching and research. He conducts research in all fields of crystallography, chemistry and materials science. Dr. Zeller has authored or co-authored more than 570 peer reviewed publications, and has been acknowledged by colleagues for his contributions to their work in another 140plus peer reviewed manuscripts.

Dr. Zeller teaches X-ray Crystallography 12650 - CHM 69600-004 and conducts training seminars throughout the year for visitors, postdoctoral researchers and students.
