Ph.D. Students


Aaron Maniloski

I graduated from the College of Staten Island, CUNY, with a bachelor degree in Chemistry, then started my Ph.D. study in 2019. After several years of trying my hand at various trades, a return to academia led to my first experience in a research lab at CIS, CUNY. The work was centered around synthetic methods for liquid crystal materials, mainly naphthalene and perylene derivatives. The lab experience was so inspiring I decided to push myself to continue in the field of research and work towards a Ph.D. Aside from being a new father, which is perhaps my main focus outside of the lab, I am a cyclist, an outdoor enthusiast, and an avid rock climber.
