Emeritus professor, Dr. James E. House, has authored the newest edition of Fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics (Academic Press). This third edition provides a clear and detailed introduction to quantum mechanics and its applications in chemistry and physics.
Dr. House is Scholar in Residence, Illinois Wesleyan University, and Emeritus Professor of Chemistry, Illinois State University. He received BS and MA degrees from Southern Illinois University and the PhD from the University of Illinois, Urbana. In his 32 years at Illinois State, he taught a variety of courses in inorganic and physical chemistry. He has authored almost 150 publications in chemistry journals, many dealing with reactions in solid materials, as well as books on chemical kinetics, quantum mechanics, and inorganic chemistry. He was elected Professor of the Year in 2011 by the student body at Illinois Wesleyan University. He is the Series Editor for Elsevier's Developments in Physical & Theoretical Chemistry series, and a member of the editorial board of The Chemical Educator.
Congratulations to Kyle Lieberum, a chemistry education major, who was elected to the CAS College Council as a student representative for a one year term beginning Fall 2017.
Please welcome our newest faculty members, Dr. Isabel Green and Dr. Michael Webb, who will be joining the Department of Chemistry in August.
Dr. Green, who will be participating in general chemistry and physical chemistry instruction, received her B.S. in Chemistry from Peking University and her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry and Surface Science from the University of Virginia. She is currently the Technical Director in Soil Remediation at Integrated Science & Technology, Inc.
Dr. Webb, who will be participating in general chemistry and inorganic chemistry instruction, received his B.Sc. Honours in Chemistry from Mount Allison University and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Simon Fraser University. He is currently an Assistant Professor at Montana Tech of the University of Montana.
