Since 2011, STEM Librarians from around the region have been gathering to hear both speakers from the professionals they serve their academic liaison areas, as well as to share and collaborate with their regional colleagues.
This annual conference is a great, low-cost conference for STEM librarians to present professionally and learn about current, practical ideas and trends in STEM librarianship. The conference is open to all STEM Librarians and is a great option for those living in the region — you don’t have to work in Texas to participate.
Dr. Dominic Casadonte, Professor of Chemistry, Minnie Stevens Piper Professor
Professor Casadonte has three areas of active research: 1) The application of high- and low-intensity ultrasound in the fabrication of novel nanomaterial and molecular systems with potential medical, energy storage, catalytic, and environmental remediation activity, 2) The synthesis of supramolecular first- and second-row transition metal organometallic complexes for use as molecular photo-circuit elements. Many of these compounds possess unusual excited state processes which we strive to understand, and 3) Chemical education Professor Casadonte has a variety of interests here. As a leader in the flipped classroom movement, Professor Casadonte performs research on this methodology for effective classroom utilization. He is also known for his work in chemical laboratory safety education.
