Dr. Jameica Byers Hill focuses on using technology in teaching chemistry, specifically general chemistry and inorganic chemistry. Her research interests concern main group organometallic chemistry in general, with a particular emphasis on organoaluminum chemistry. Efforts are currently directed towards three main areas: (1) The synthesis, utility, and applications of organoaluminum III-V compounds as possible single source precursors to ceramic materials; (2) The synthesis of organoaluminum starting materials and their interactions with nitrogen- and oxygen-based reagents; (3) The MOCVD potential of Group III compounds containing M-M bonds. She has had a lifelong interest in athletics and currently serves as the Faculty Athletics Representative.
Dr. Grace Schwartz teaches environmental chemistry, general chemistry and analytical chemistry. Her research interests include trace element biogeochemistry and metal contaminant remediation. She earned a B.S. degree in chemistry and a B.A. degree in philosophy from Virginia Commonwealth University, and a Ph.D. in environmental engineering from Duke University. She likes the small class sizes at Wofford that allow her to get to know every student every semester. She also appreciates the opportunity to collaborate across disciplines while teaching interim classes. Away from Wofford, she enjoys swimming, hiking, travel and concocting new recipes in the kitchen.
