NEWS UPDATE: SCIENCE ON TAP WITH DEAN KELLER

Science on Tap is a series of casual moderated discussions featuring experts who explore the intersection of science and culture. This episode featured Dr. Maduka Ogba who is an assistant professor of chemistry in Schmid College of Science and Technology. In this role, Dr. Ogba enjoys working with students in his computational chemistry research lab (The OMO Lab) to (i) study the underlying physical and chemical factors governing molecular structure, reaction mechanisms, and selectivity in organocatalyzed reactions, and (ii) to develop software and informatics tools for chemists to use to rapidly mine, analyze, and visualize chemical data. Dr. Ogba also enjoys teaching students the fundamental theories in organic chemistry, as well as applied work in computational chemistry, and cheminformatics. He sat down with Dr. Jason Keller for a Drink and a great conversation
