Overview

  • Meg Greenslade has been with the Chemistry Department since 2007. She built and managed an experimental laboratory with modeling capabilities to investigate aerosol optical properties. She teaches a diverse variety of lecture and laboratory courses to undergraduate and graduate students. She developed, implemented and engages in programs with teams of faculty to support, mentor, and retain students through the Scholarships in STEM (grant ended 12/2021) and Noyce Programs funded by NSF. She is not accepting new graduate students at this time.
