Carla M. VerschoorSenior Lecturer in Chemistry
Enjoys teaching across the curriculum, from first-year students to graduating seniors.
I am currently working on a project which includes collaboration with a Wellesley student. We will be providing infrared, UV-Vis, and cyclic voltammetry spectral data for the project, "Synthesis, Electrochemistry and Chemical Oxidation of Ferrocenylphosphine Chalcogenides."
My teaching spans all levels from general chemistry to advanced inorganic. In Chemistry 105 and 205, I enjoy teaching chemistry using "real world" examples, such as the environment. In advanced inorganic, the favorite experiment involves making a high-temperature superconductor
Outside of Wellesley, I have a strong interest in science education at the primary and secondary levels, especially in underserved schools.
Beyond chemistry, I enjoy biking, hiking, and spending time with my family.
