Kasey J. Clear

Murray State University
United States of America


Dr. Clear is a native of Niles, Michigan and was awarded his B.S. in Chemistry from Indiana University South Bend in 2011. He completed his Ph.D. in 2016 at the University of Notre Dame under the supervision of Professor Bradley D. Smith, where he studied anion and biomembrane molecular recognition using synthetic receptors and fluorescent dyes. As a graduate student, Dr. Clear co-authored six peer-reviewed articles and one book chapter. He began his independent career in academia at Murray State University in fall of 2016. His research interests include the design and study of synthetic receptors for biologically important anions that will have application in separations, imaging, and chemical biology. Dr. Clear primarily teaches organic chemistry at both the undergraduate and graduate level
