I have a Bachelors Degree from Troy University, and 31 years of teaching experience at the high school level. I teach CHM I and Lab for Troy University. I love teaching which is why I do what I do. My interests in chemistry lean toward the medical field. The relationships of chemical elements and compounds that determine how the body reacts to its environment including toxic substances and diseases interest me most. In addition, I search for methods to present materials to students in a manner in which they are able to understand chemistry concepts more easily and be successful in the classes that I instruct.
Suzanne Farver Lukjan received her PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Florida in 2011. Dr. Suzanne Farver Lukjan joined the faculty at Troy University in 2013. Her research interests include membrane protein structure, lipid dynamics, and applying biophysical techniques, such as NMR, to study complex lipid membrane systems. She currently teaches general chemistry I (lecture\ lab) and Biochemistry (lecture\ lab).
My research interests are educational computer software, improving the teaching and understanding of thermodynamics, and advancing higher education by collaborating on creating learning resources.
Dr. Habib ur Rehman obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Mississippi State University in 2014. Dr. Rehman is a computational chemist and uses theoretical and computational approaches to explore structure, function, and dynamics of large biomolecules. His teaching interests are in the areas of Physical/Biophysical Chemistry. Currently he is teaching General Chemistry 1 and Physical Science courses with their associated labs.
Dr. Liu received his B.S. in Applied Chemistry and Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). After graduation, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher and Research Fellow at Auburn University. Then, he joined Troy University in 2012. His current research interest is to apply advanced analytical instruments in recycled plastic, renewable energy and food science areas.
I received my B.Sc. in Chemistry from Wilfrid Laurier University and an M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Waterloo. My research focuses on tailoring polymeric materials (e.g. plastic, rubber) for specific applications.
His current research interest is in using Organic Chemistry as a tool to explore two areas: 1) The rational construction of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for clean energy-related applications including methane storage, hydrogen storage, and carbon dioxide capture; 2) The genetic incorporation of unnatural amino acids into proteins and labeling of proteins with small molecule probes.
I am a physical chemist with a background in surface science and electrochemistry. I am also interested in chemical education.
I am an organic chemist with a particular interest in analytical chromatography and spectroscopy.
