Phone: (414) 288-7191

Professor Fiedler received his Ph.D. degree in inorganic chemistry under the direction of Thomas Brunold at the University at Wisconsin-Madison in 2006.  After graduating from Madison, he began an NIH postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Prof. Larry Que, Jr. at the University of Minnesota, where synthesized and characterized high-valent iron complexes with relevance to oxygen activation in biological systems.  He joined the faculty at Marquette University in August 2009.

AnneMs. Anne Fischer, 4th year graduate student
Office: TWC 430

Anne grew up in Manitowoc, WI, and completed her B.S. in Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire. There she worked for Dr. Michael Carney in collaboration with Chevron Phillips Chemical Company. Her current work is focused on synthesizing and characterizing metal complexes that mimic the active sites of a series of closely related thiol dioxygenases. Outside of lab, she enjoys watching basketball, running, and cooking.

Office: TWC 430

Alexandra Guzek grew up in Highland Park, IL. She is currently completing her B.S. in Biomedical Sciences at Marquette University and is on a pre-dental track. Her current project involves the synthesis of ligands and metal complexes to mimic the active site of the metalloenzyme sulfoxide synthase. When she is not in the lab or studying, Alexandra loves working out, baking, and watching Netflix.



Mr. Praveen Kumar, 1st year graduate student
Office: TWC 430

Praveen was born in Pondicherry, India. In 1997, he immigrated to West Lafayette, Indiana at a young age.  He graduated from University of  Cincinnati in 2015 with a B.S. in Chemistry.  As a graduate assistant, Praveen enjoys instructing general chemistry labs at Marquette. Currently, he is working on synthesizing metal complexes that mimic the active site of dioxygenase-type enzymes. His interests include; racquet sports and video games.


Ms. Callie Troutfetter, senior
Office: TWC 430

Callie grew up in Oshkosh, WI and is currently a senior at Marquette working towards a B.S. in Chemistry.  Her project involves the synthesis of ligands to mimic the 3-Histidine facial triad found in certain thiol dioxygenases.  In her free time, she enjoys participating in intramural leagues on campus (primarily volleyball and softball), spending time with friends, and traveling.
