About Professor Weix

Daniel graduated from Columbia University in 2000, where he conducted research on helicenes with Thomas Katz. During his PhD work with Jonathan Ellman at the University of California (2000-2005), Daniel worked on improved methods for the synthesis and the use of tert-butanesulfinamide. Following postdoctoral work on Ir-catalyzed allylation chemistry with John Hartwig, Daniel began his independent career at the University of Rochester in 2008 and in 2017 moved to the University of Wisconsin as the Wayland E. Noland Distinguished Chair in Chemistry. Daniel has been the recipient of an NSF pre-doctoral fellowship, an NIH postdoctoral fellowship, Green Chemistry awards from Pfizer-Groton, a Thieme Journal Award, an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship, a Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award, the Novartis Early Career Award, a JSPS Research Fellowship, and was recently elected a fellow of the AAAS. His research program is currently supported by the NIH, the ACS PRF, Novartis, Boehringer-Ingelheim, and Pfizer.
