Raychelle Burks, associate professor of analytical chemistry at American University, will present the Department of Chemistry's DEI Colloquium on "Chemistry and Community."

About the Speaker:
After working in a crime lab, Dr. Burks returned to academia, teaching, and forensic science research. An analytical chemist, she enjoys the challenge of developing detection methods for a wide variety of compounds. Her research team is focused on the development of colorimetric and luminescent sensor arrays for the detection of analytes of mainly forensic and national security interests with accompanying image and chemometric analysis. She is a popular science communicator, appearing on TV, in podcasts, and at large genre cons such as DragonCon and GeekGirlCon, in addition to writing a science-meets-true crime column called “Trace Analysis” for Chemistry World.
