Dr. Michelle Bunagan

Dr. Michelle Bunagan

A Chemist’s Enthusiasm taken Step-by-Step When she’s not teaching, traveling, or spending time with her husband and young son, Dr. Michelle Bunagan can usually be found doing research in her lab, specifically concentrating on the physics of chemistry, which she uses to investigate the structure and dynamics of proteins. Her latest research project, where she…Continue Reading

Dr. Peter DePasquale

Dr. Peter DePasquale

Tucked away in the fourth floor of Forcina Hall is the High-performance Scientific Computing Cluster Lab, which currently houses 65 network servers donated by Linode, LLC, and Dr. Peter DePasquale’s research lab. This is the temporary location for the Computer Science Department, until summer 2017 when the construction of TCNJ’s new STEM building is completed. The new STEM building will be the home of Computer Science, and the High-performance Scientific Computing lab will increase in size to 300 servers.Continue Reading

Dr. Romulo Ochoa

Ochoa puts his Best Teaching Theories into Practice All TCNJ faculty members place heavy emphasis on the expression ‘patience and perseverance are everything.’ But this turn of phrase especially rings true to TCNJ’s physics professor, Dr. Romulo Ochoa. As an individual with a drive to understand more about the dynamics of life, Dr. Ochoa has…Continue Reading

Dr. Donald Hirsh

Dr. Donald Hirsh

This Chemistry Professor’s Teaching Resonates with Students Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) are tools utilized by scientists to study molecular structures. NMR measures the resonance emitted by atomic nuclei, while EPR studies the resonance from unpaired electrons. These are the tools Dr. Donald Hirsh and his research students work with and…Continue Reading

Dr. Dimitris Papamichail

Dr. Dimitris Papamichail

It is a time for technology. Addicting apps on smartphones, video games with their own universes, search engines to find the answers to any question, social media connected to the world, and programs to lead researchers to answers. Dr. Dimitris Papamichail from the Computer Science Department knows the power of technology.Continue Reading

Dr. Michael Ochs

Dr. Michael Ochs

You’ve probably never heard of polycythemia vera, a rare cancer that pushes bone marrow into red blood cell production overdrive, upping the risk of blood clots and even leukemia. While there is no cure for the disease, Michael Ochs, TCNJ associate professor of mathematics and statistics, and a colleague of his at Johns Hopkins, are a step closer to identifying patients who stand the best chance of benefitting from treatment.Continue Reading

Dr. Andrew Clifford

Dr. Andrew Clifford

Constructing Mathematical Thinkers Since childhood, Dr. Andrew Clifford seemed to know he would enter the world of Mathematics. “According to my mom, in kindergarten, the teacher said, ‘what do you want to be when you grow up’ and we had to draw a picture of it.” Clifford reminisced, “I had my paper and drew a…Continue Reading

Dr. John Allison
