Join Asst. Director Jonathan Harper for a conversation with Chemistry Professor Raychelle Burks. After working in a crime lab, Dr. Burks returned to academia, teaching, and forensic science research. An analytical chemist, she enjoys the challenge developing detection methods for a wide-variety of compounds. Her research team is focused on the development of colorimetric and luminescent sensor arrays for the detection of analytes of mainly forensic and national security interests with accompanying image and chemometric analysis. Dr. Burks is a popular science communicator, appearing on TV, in podcasts, at large genre cons such as DragonCon and GeekGirlCon, in addition to writing a science-meets-true crime column called "Trace Analysis" for Chemistry World.
A Q&A will follow.
This event is part of the Meet-the-Faculty webinar series and provides an opportunity to engage with our professors and learn more about graduate opportunities in American University's College of Arts & Sciences.
Instructions to access the webinar will be emailed to all registrants the morning of the event.
