Sarah St. Angelo is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry. She joined Dickinson’s Chemistry Department as a Visiting Assistant Professor in 2006, and she accepted a tenure track position in 2008. Since arriving at Dickinson, she has taught Foundations of Chemistry with Lab (Chem 141), Nanochemistry (Chem 205), Modern Chemical Analysis (Chem 243, lecture only) Thermodynamics and Kinetics with Lab (Chem 244), Inorganic Chemistry with Lab (Chem 347, writing intensive), and Nanomaterials (Chem 490). During the 2013-14 academic year, Professor St. Angelo is scheduled to teach a First Year Seminar on nanotechnology and society.
Professor St. Angelo was awarded a research fellowhip from the American Association of Univeristy Women (AAUW) to support her during her sabbatical in 2012-13. During sabbatical, she was also awarded a Materials Research Facilities Network (MRFN) Faculty Fellowship to perform research at the Penn State University MRSEC--Center for Nanoscale Science.
During the 2009-10 academic year, Professor St. Angelo co-founded the interdisciplinary science seminar series, Rush Hour. Seminars are held throughout each semester, and most speakers are drawn from among the science faculty at Dickinson. They have been a great way for students, faculty, and staff to learn about the various interdisciplinary pursuits occuring in our labs and classrooms.
Professor St. Angelo’s research interests lie in the broad area of colloidal science and nanotechnology. This field of study relies on numerous areas of chemistry and technology—including physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, surface science, and engineering.
