BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.— A research scientist from Florida State University’s National High Magnetic Field Laboratory—and a Gardner-Webb alumnus—will give a distinguished chemistry presentation at Gardner-Webb on Friday, Oct. 14 at 1:00 p.m. in Withrow Hall, room 206.  All are welcome to attend.

Dr. David Podgorski, who earned his B.S. in Chemistry at Gardner-Webb in 2007, recently completed his Ph.D. in Chemistry at Florida State.  He has already published several scientific articles, and his research has taken him as far as St. Petersburg, Russia.  On Friday, Podgorski will discuss sophisticated methods of characterizing natural organic matter.

The lecture is part of Gardner-Webb’s Applications of Chemistry Seminar Series, coordinated by the department of natural sciences.

In addition to Podgorski, GWU alumna Jackie Jarvis will also be in attendance.  Having earned her degree in chemistry and biology at Gardner-Webb in 2008, Jarvis is currently working toward her Ph.D. in Chemistry.
