Zachary was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI. He earned his B.S. in chemistry at Boston College where he initially worked under Professor Kingsbury on the total synthesis of potential antidiabetic drug achyrofuran. Later, he joined the Morken group and helped develop an intramolecular, enantioselevtive, Suzuki-type cross couping methodology. He joined the Krische group in the fall of 2013 and is exploring new methodologies.
