Assistant Professor Joshua Schrier, Associate Professor Alexander Norquist, and Assistant Professor of Computer Science Sorelle Friedler (right to left) have been awarded a National Science Foundation grant for their proposal, "The Dark Reaction Project: a machine learning approach to materials discovery."
Chemistry is central to the development of new medicines and materials, the understanding of biological processes on a molecular level and many important global issues of today, including the environment and energy.
Our curriculum is designed to allow chemistry majors to learn fundamental chemical concepts and laboratory skills and to have ample opportunity to engage in original research with guidance from a faculty mentor.

A team of Haverford College researchers, including several students, published a cover story in Nature on using unpublished "dark reactions" to create a machine-learning algorithm that is able to predict reaction successes or failures with greater accuracy than human intuition....
