Erin E. Brown (Podlesny)
Assistant Professor of Chemistry
BIOGRAPHYDr. Podlesny joined the faculty at Stockton as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry, after having received postdoctoral training in continuous flow chemistry at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Prior to her postdoctoral studies at MIT, she was a NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein and NIH Chemistry-Biology Predoctoral Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, where she completed her Ph.D. in Organic chemistry, having studied the synthesis of chiral binaphthoquinones as precursors in natural product synthesis and as ligands for asymmetric catalysis.
