Alumni Career Profiles

Welcome to the home page of the Department of Chemistry at Louisiana State University

Come Fall 2017, we will have 34 tenure-track faculty, including four new assistant professors. Faculty perform ground-breaking research across a range of topics, including new methods for the synthesis of biomedically important compounds, nanomaterials, energy storage, computational models for assorted phenomena, ultra-fast lasers, and designer polymers. Research projects are funded from assorted sources including the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, US Department of Energy and the Louisiana Board of Regents. We have excellent facilities that are maintained by experienced scientists. LSU’s Shared Instrumentation Facility (SIF) is located on the ground floor of our new (2012) Chemistry Materials Building.
Most of our researchers are also active teachers, joined by a strong team of instructors and teaching assistants. During the 2016-17 academic year there were 6,396 enrollments in general chemistry lecture classes. There were 2,368 enrollments in organic chemistry lecture classes, reflecting the large number of pre-professional students that we teach. Enrollments have grown 20-30% in the past decade. In 2016-2017, we introduced a new format for General Chemistry Labs that includes a one third online component, enabling us to simultaneously enhance student learning and increase our capacity to 1,120 students per semester. Our faculty and students are supported by a team of dedicated research associates and staff.
We have a small number of postdoctoral researchers and about 130 graduate students, along with undergraduates, engaged in cutting-edge research. We take diversity seriously in all our endeavors but are particularly proud of being ranked number one in the US for percent female and percent underrepresented minority PhD graduates from 2005-9 (Laursen Weston, J. Chem. Ed. 2014, 91. 1762-1776). In Fall 2017, slightly more than half our incoming graduate students are women and slightly more than 40% of the domestic students are from underrepresented minorities. Our international graduate students come from all over the world, including Bangladesh, China, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Germany, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Iran, Kenya, Nepal, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Taiwan, Trinidad and Vietnam. Our graduates go on to a range of fulfilling careers, as our alumni spotlight page shows. If you are a graduate of our Department and would like to share your story, please contact me.
We have three very active student organizations based in our Department: the Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society (SAACS). the Chemistry Graduate Student Council (CGSC) and the National Organization for Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE).

Why we Write Software at GW Libraries

I’ve been asked “why do you write software?” a lot in my career, and particularly in my position here as Director of Scholarly Technology at GW Libraries, where we do write a lot of software. For me, the answer is simple, and it’s the same answer I’ve always given, since I first went to library school: it is the work of a librarian to write software. This has always seemed natural and clear to me, but I understand that it’s not obvious to everyone, especially in a broader organizational context.

So why is it important to have staff at a research library with appropriate skills and experience tasked with writing software?

First, navigating through the many information resources we provide — both online and on our shelves — isn’t easy. GW Libraries, like many research libraries, provides access to hundreds of online databases, thousands of online journals, and millions of physical items. To help people find what they need quickly, we have to offer the clearest possible paths for everyone to navigate for themselves. Recently we wrote a software application that provides a new quick search box on our site at http://library.gwu.edu/ that searches a wide range of sources at once, and more importantly, it searches a range of types of sources at once. This helps anyone searching our site to make two quick choices: what kind of resource they’re looking for, and where to go within that category of resources to dig deeper. This isn’t a new idea – many of our peer institutions offer similar services, and we credit NCSU Libraries with pioneering this concept. But all of our libraries subscribe to different sources, and to put them all together in a way that made the most sense for GWU, we wrote our own software. Over time, the sources themselves will change, but now we have the ability to adapt our application to new content over time without having to sacrifice the now-improved experience of finding information through GW Libraries.

“All that is gold does not glitter …”

Kean university mbaThe Special Collections Research Center s rare and specialized books collections contain many treasures. The SCRC is excited to share some of their unique print materials in anticipation of the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey this week: a set of first edition printings of J. R. R. Tolkien s Lord of the Rings trilogy! Tolkien published The Lord of the Rings in three volumes over the course of a year from 1954 to 1955, as a sequel to his children s fantasy novel The Hobbit, published in 1937. All three books are bound in red cloth with gold stamping on the spines, and grey dust jackets printed in red, black and gold. Each volume contains a foldout map of Tolkien s rendition of Middle Earth. Part one, The Fellowship of the Rings, also contains a handwritten note from Tolkien to E. Rasdall, Esq., dated March 21, 1956, tucked into the dust jacket! It reads:

I am so sorry! Your parcel arrived safely, but it arrived at a crowded time, and I was also unwell. In fact, I had to go away to recuperate, and only returned yesterday. It was on my conscience that I had gone off without either returning your books or letting you know. I will send them off, I hope on Friday. Why not at once? Well, because tomorrow my wife and I celebrate our 40th or ruby wedding anniversary, and are preparing for the gathering of our children and children-in-law, which has not occurred complete for many years. I fear it will be a ceremony by Shire standards brief, moderate, simple, and jejune but there may be a speech!

P.S. I have just had a letter from a real Sam Gamgee (of Tooting)!

Digital Media Degree BSc (Hons)

1. Overview

Bringing design, production and development together in the world of Digital Media provides an exciting future for graduates with this degree.

Combining creative design skills with a high level of technical ability ensures that employers are gaining the graduates they require to take their companies to the next level. The course will provide you with the knowledge and practical skills to start with a client brief and take your design concepts through to practical implementation.

The four main themes of design, human computer interaction, web and multimedia running throughout this degree are underpinned by technical and professional skills.

The themes provide you with the ability to work in 2D and 3D environments, program for interaction with traditional computer interfaces or via gestural and whole body interaction and work with the latest mobile technologies.

There is a strong emphasis on providing real life experience by introducing client based projects from the second year onwards as part of the course. Students are encouraged to critically evaluate their work and collate all their creative artefacts; these form a demonstrable portfolio of work which is an integral part of the course. The portfolio becomes a tangible on-going record of the student’s achievements and improves employability.

The final year will give you the opportunity to specialise with a major piece of self-directed individual project work, as well as develop strong skills in advanced aspects of digital media design, production and development.

2. What you will study

Year 1
You will participate with other computing students in an inter-disciplinary first year. Modules designed specifically for digital media design and production will be supplemented by subjects such as collaborative and professional skills, problem solving and modelling, and web design and development.

Year 2
In the second year, you will further your design skills by studying design principles from initial concepts through to development and delivery. These skills will enable the creation of highly interactive applications in a range of contexts incorporating 2D graphics and animation.

Year 3
In this year, you will expand your design and development skills into 3D graphics modelling to deliver expressive and engaging digital media solutions across a wide range of browsers, operating systems, and devices.

You will experience larger scale group projects that will provide key skills in project management applied to problems in an industrial context.

Year 4
Your final year concentrates on a self-directed individual project in your chosen specialist area as well as introducing modules in 3D animation and interaction. The skills gained will enable you to create high-quality audio and video production and effects, and design mobile application for an immersive, interactive media-rich user experience.

The University regularly reviews its courses. Course content and structure may change over time. See our Course Disclaimer for more information.

3. How you will learn

Throughout the course, theoretical content is complemented by practical work, supporting your academic development by providing opportunities to engage with real-world problems. You will be taught through an appropriate combination of lectures, tutorials, labs and have the opportunity to learn from external speakers. You will also be supported through our online virtual learning environment where you can access a wide variety of resources and other support materials.

Group work is important and you will have the opportunity to develop your project management skills by engaging with a variety of real-world problems. The individual Honours project provides an opportunity for applying specialist knowledge to a particular area of interest within the field of digital media, integrating your technical, analytic, problem-solving, managerial and communication skills. Working with the full support and guidance of an allocated academic supervisor, you will be given the opportunity to propose, plan, specify, develop, evaluate, and present a substantial project.
