Seth Wiley joined NREL in 2023 to study coordination effects on cofactors in the mechanism of electron bifurcation in Pyrococcus furiosus NADH-dependent ferredoxin-NADP+ oxidoreductase I (NfnSL). Before NREL, Wiley worked at Emory University as a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of R. Brian Dyer studying the chemical and physical framework for how [FeFe] hydrogenases rapidly and reversibly convert protons and electrons into hydrogen under mild conditions. To study these quick hydrogenases, Wiley employed CdSe-based nanocrystalline semiconductors in conjunction with various spectroscopic techniques such as time-resolved infrared spectroscopy, cryogenic infrared spectroscopy, and UV-visible spectroscopy.
