Chemistry and Biochemistry News

The School of the Sciences hosted an Information Session about applying and succeeding in graduate school.  The session featured faculty members from the School of the Sciences, Dr. Will Harrell (Chemistry), Dr. Jeremy Burkett (Chemistry), Dr. Mark Branson (Mathematics) and Dr. Mark Norris (Biology).  Chemistry senior Kristen Cassetta thought that all of the panelists were extremely helpful.  They each had different and unique experiences in graduate school and their advice regarding networking with professors before entering graduate school was extremely beneficial. 

Seven new students and four faculty members were inducted into the Gamma Zeta Chapter of Gamma Sigma Epsilon (GSE), the Chemistry Honor Society.  GSE recognizes outstanding students, demonstrating exceptional ability and interest in the field of chemistry.   In order to be inducted, students must maintain a 3.4 Chemistry GPA and 3.0 Math and Science GPA.  Congratulations to students, Ashlyn Hawbaker (Chem ’16), Blake Ford (Chem ’17), Corinna Carter (Chem ’17), Dzov Singman (Biochem ’17), Emily Wolf (Biochem ’17), Heather Drake (Chem ’16), and Prince Gyamfi (Biochem ’16).  New faculty members are also inducted into the Gamma Zeta Chapter.  Congratulations to Dr. Will Harrell, Dr. Dawn Ward, Dr. Jeremy Burkett and Dr. Mihaela Deselnicu.  

Dr. Jeremy Burkett joined the Chemistry Faculty at Stevenson University this fall after teaching at the University of Great Falls in Montana for 5 years.  Dr. Burkett completed his undergraduate degree at Huntington University in Indiana and earned his Ph.D. in Chemistry at Purdue University.  This semester, Dr. Burkett is teaching General Chemistry Lecture and Lab as well as mentoring a student in research.  Dr. Burkett's research project is based in Bioinorganic Chemistry and focuses on using inorganic chemistry to model complex systems in a simpler manner.  Dr. Burkett has enjoyed meeting all of the faculty and students at Stevenson and looks to becoming more involved in the Department of Chemistry and mentoring students. 

Faculty and students participated in SU's Community Service Day. Various activities were arranged for SU students, faculty, and staff to make things that would benefit others in the greater community....Click here to read more.
