We are delighted to announce that Dr. Samantha Robinson will join the Department of Chemistry as Lecturer, with a focus on introductory-level courses in general and organic chemistry.
Dr. Robinson received her B.S. in chemistry from the University of Iowa. She then received her Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Washington, where she studied inorganic synthesis with Prof. D. Michael Heinekey. Following a year of postdoctoral research at the Institute for Integrated Catalysis at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Dr. Robinson joined the faculty at Seattle Pacific University. As an assistant professor, Dr. Robinson taught lecture and laboratory courses in general chemistry and upper-division inorganic chemistry, with significant curriculum and course development contributions in those areas.
We look forward to having Dr. Robinson join us in September as our fifth lecturer, following the recent departure of Dr. Jasmine Bryant.
