Kathryn L. Rowberg, J.D., Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Chemistry
Kathryn (Kay) Rowberg is an associate professor of chemistry in the chemistry and physics department. Her research ranges from environmental monitoring and art conservation to computational modeling.
I love physical activity and favor tennis, cross-country skiing, hiking, swimming, spelunking and have climbed Mt Kilimanjaro twice.

Rowberg hopes her chemistry courses change the way students approach life: to be curious about how things work, put creativity to work by inventing and making new products and assume leadership roles in community decision-making regarding environmental issues.
