Antonio Lopez

Chemistry Lab Manager

Durham

Joined NCSSM in July 2020

Antonio A. Lopez, born and raised in Texas, gained an interest in chemistry from an enthusiastic high school teacher who became a family friend. That spark of interest led him to pursue and earn a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, TX. After graduation he then moved to Raleigh, NC, where he earned a master’s degree in chemistry from North Carolina State University. His research focused on synthesis and photophysical characterization of dinuclear PtII molecules that exhibit metal-metal-to-ligand charge transfer. In his free time, Antonio enjoys volunteering with his wife at their parish and dog-butlering at SPCA of Wake County. He also enjoys woodworking and plans to eventually make his own furniture.
