Anne Padias

Director of Academic Services (Retired)
Degrees and Appointments: 
Lic. Chemistry 1971, State University of Ghent, Belgium
Ph.D. Chemistry 1975, State University of Ghent, Belgium
Research Summary: 

Organic chemistry affects all aspects of life and living systems, but also our modern technological society. A basic understanding of the basic principles of this chemistry will aid students to make more informed decisions in their career and life.

The organic chemistry laboratories are designed to illustrate the material covered in lecture to the students, but also to teach them how to work independently in any laboratory environment.

Safety is of the utmost importance in the laboratory, but also in everyday life. The safety class aims to make the students aware of the impact their behavior has on their safety in any circumstance. Personal responsibility and ethics are also discussed in this class.
