Roger G. Harrison
ASSOCIATE DEPARTMENT CHAIR
The Harrison Lab Group focuses on molecular recognition, separations by ion chromatography, and nanomaterials. Dr. Harrison isolates, analyzes, and manipulates molecular structures to study water and fluid contaminants.
The Stowers Laboratory takes an interdisciplinary approach towards research of carbon dioxide activation and reactivity through principles of inorganic, physical, and organic chemistry. Dr. Stowers works to develop new catalysts that use carbon dioxide to form commodity chemicals. Understanding and controlling the production of carbon dioxide has important effects on the environment and on chemical manufacturing.
Richard K. Watt
Straddling the line between inorganic chemistry and biochemistry, Dr. Watt studies how the tiny amounts of iron we need can become out of balance and cause diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. His research aims to develop methods of regulating iron levels in the body.
