The Department of Chemistry and Physics is extremely excited to announce the addition of a new faculty member to our community. Dr. Michelle Watt will be joining our department in Fall 2018 as an Assistant Professor in Organic Chemistry. Dr. Watt earned her Ph.D in Chemistry at the University of Oregon and has been teaching at Western State Colorado University for several years. We are excited for the knowledge and expertise that she will bring in organic and biochemistry. Dr. Watt’s research on campus will focus on organic synthesis, molecules that exhibit non-covalent interactions, and alternative monomers that could replace dangerous BPA-type plastics. Please welcome Dr. Watt to campus and to our department this fall semester!
