Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry Faculty and Staff

Our faculty members each have their own unique backgrounds and interests. Small class sizes help us form close relationships with students, but we’re also proud of our accessibility outside the classroom. We’re always excited to help future chemists set and achieve their goals.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like to learn more.
