Craig Teague

Associate Professor, Cornell College
I teach physical chemistry, general chemistry, and other courses in the undergraduate curriculum. I also do student/faculty research. I am interested in active learning, especially through Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning. My student/faculty research centers on investigations of molecular interactions at the nanoscale, mostly to address energy-related questions.
