MASTER SEMINAR SPEAKER
Sunday Master Seminar

In 1996 David Brown joined the full-time faculty in the Department of Chemistry at Southwestern College, one of the 112 California community colleges, situated 8 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border in Chula Vista, CA. A native of the Mississippi River Valley region of southern Illinois, Brown holds a B.A. in Chemistry from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, earned a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and undertook postdoctoral research at UC San Diego. His primary areas of research have been in molecular spectroscopy, materials characterization, sustainable energy, and nanotechnology. Brown has been a Principal Investigator on several National Science Foundation grants that have supported a variety of projects in curriculum and program development, faculty professional development, science outreach to the public, and undergraduate research.

In August of 2012, Brown commenced a leave from Southwestern College to take a position in the Division of Undergraduate Education at the National Science Foundation (NSF) in Arlington, VA, where he serves as a Program Director. While at NSF, his assignments have included serving as Co-Lead Program Director on the Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program, along with working on the Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) program and the NSF Scholarships in STEM (S-STEM) program, while participating in various committees and working groups. He received the 2012 Award for Incorporating Sustainability into Chemistry Education from the American Chemical Society Committee on Environmental Improvement and the 2007 Stanley C. Israel Award for Advancing Diversity in the Chemical Sciences from the American Chemical Society Western Region.
