Message from the Chair

Chemistry has evolved to become a highly interdisciplinary physical science, playing a central role in the biological sciences, providing the building blocks for materials science and being an integral part of the conversation in environmental and atmospheric science. Tulane’s Chemistry program has a curriculum centered on the fundamentals of chemistry at the undergraduate level and serves nearly 1000 students each semester. Faculty research and graduate study span a broad range, from detailed studies of host-guest supramolecular interactions to ultrafast 2D infrared spectroscopic studies and sophisticated theoretical and computational modeling of vibrational energy migration. Our 16 research faculty, 60+ graduate students and sophisticated infrastructure provide a vibrant research environment. Close relations with other science and engineering departments provide a strong base for interdisciplinary collaborations in research and teaching. These factors, coupled with the novelty of life in New Orleans, make Tulane a great place to study Chemistry.
On a more practical note, I hope you find this web site useful for locating the information you are seeking about our department’s faculty, staff, infrastructure and programs.
