Tamara Hamilton, PhD: (University of Iowa), Assistant professor, 2008-present, attended undergraduate studies at Acadia University in Nova Scotia, Canada (2001). Graduate work at the University of Iowa involved metal-organic polyhedra and polygons made from building blocks that were synthesized in the solid state. She comes to Barry following a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Montreal where she studied the crystallization of molecules containing pyrogallol. Her research at Barry focuses on metal-organic polyhedra with porphyrin walls and their catalytic properties.
Tony Wallner, PhD: (Case Western Reserve University) Professor, 2000-present. Dr Wallner's research interests include NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) studies of UV stabilized polymers (such as polymethylmethacrylate); stability of creatine in various solutions; and AA (Atomic absorption) analysis of environmental samples (soils and water) for heavy metals.
