Professor Kamunde-Devonish studies inorganic chemistry. Her research is focused on the synthetic design of metal complexes that can serve as models for metalloenzymes, and studying the structure-function relationships of these complexes to better understand how they activate small molecules in biological systems. She is also interested in promoting science literacy through education and community outreach.
