I attended Western Kentucky University and received my B.S. in Biochemistry. Following two years as a process chemist at an automotive plating facility in Bowling Green, KY, I attended University of Cincinnati to pursue my interests in physical and inorganic chemistry. I left full-time graduate school to begin a career, but bounced around for a few years. I landed at Belmont in the fall of 2010 to teach and develop a focused undergraduate research project. I currently teach an introductory chemistry course, general chemistry I&II, biophysical chemistry, physical chemistry I&II, and direct a modest research project. My research interests focus on the photophysics and photochemistry of biological mimic first-row transition metal Schiff-Base complexes and their kinetic behavior during oxidative-addition/reductive-elimination reactions.
Outside of the classroom and the laboratory, I enjoy spending time with my lovely wife and three young children, playing guitar, argument, reading (books made with paper), and drinking coffee.
I would like to contact Dr. Stace.
