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), Thermodynamics and Kinetics with Lab (Chem 244), and Inorganic Chemistry (Chem 347). During the 2009-2010 academic year, she is teaching a new writing-intensive Inorganic Chemistry course that includes a laboratory component, a seminar focusing on Nanomaterials Chemistry (Chem 490), and Thermodynamics and Kinetics with Lab.
Also during the 2009-2010 academic year, Professor St. Angelo and her chemistry colleague, Professor Kristi Humphreys, 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.
