Jesudoss Kingston, lecturer, received his B.S. and M.S. from The American College, Madurai, Tamilnadu, India (1988-1993) and Ph.D. in organosilicon chemistry from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai, India in 1999. He spent two year as a postdoctoral fellow at the Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Israel under the guidance of Prof. Daniel Kost focusing mainly on the stereodynamics and reactivity of penta- and hexa-coordinated organosilicon compounds. Following another two years of postdoctoral work at the University of Kentucky with Prof. Folami Ladipo in the area of well-defined low-valent organotitanium compounds, he accepted the postdoctoral fellowship from Iowa State University to work in the research group of Prof. John G. Verkade, the University Professor at the chemistry department where he developed the chemistry of proazaphosphatranes and their novel ionic derivatives for catalyzing organic transformations. Dr. Kingston has joined the Department of Chemistry as a lecturer since Fall 2007. His professional memberships includes American Chemical Society and Sigma-Xi.
