The St. Olaf Chemistry Department welcomes Erik Epp. Erik graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with an honors B.S. in chemistry. He then proceeded to the University of Chicago, where he earned a M.S. in physical chemistry for computational chemistry modeling of interstellar gas clouds. Most recently, he hails from Purdue University where he is finishing a doctorate in chemical education research, dealing with how students learn physical chemistry through the use of hypermedia technology. He greatly enjoys teaching and has been energized by interactions with students in his Chem 121 and 125 classes at St. Olaf College. Stop by his office (RNS 328) to meet him and play with some puzzles. Clicking on the title of this post will take you to a longer blurb about Erik and other members of the St. Olaf Chemistry Department.
