Dr. Chidsey received his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from Dartmouth College in 1978 and his PhD from Stanford in 1983 and completed a year of postdoctoral Study at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He was a member of Technical Staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories (1984-1992) before joining the Stanford faculty in 1992. His research concerns the chemistry of surfaces and interfaces, particularly the interface between electrically conductive solids and molecular materials.

Jennifer Schwartz Poehlmann

Senior Lecturer, Chemistry
Dr. Schwartz received her undergraduate degree in Chemistry at Washington University in St. Louis in 2002. At the end of 2008, she completed her PhD with research into the structure and function of ferritin and other iron proteins. During this time, Dr. Schwartz also gained significant teaching experience through her work with her department and Stanford’s Center for Teaching and Learning. Dr. Schwartz also leads the Mentors in Teaching Program at the Center for Teaching and Learning and is part of the ChemEX2 team.

Jennifer Wolf

She received her M.A. in Education and Reading Specialist credential from San Francisco State University, with a focus on language acquisition and literacy. She also spent 7 years as a teacher researcher using lesson study to research effective lesson design in math and language arts.

Megan Franke

UCLA, Professor and Chair, Education Department
Dr. Franke support teachers and principals in learning theories and practices of teaching and leadership in low-performing urban schools. Her doctoral classes focus on diversity in mathematics education as well as on understanding research methods as they answer the questions of Urban Schooling. She is collaborating with CSET on our project to promote effective instruction for elementary math.
