Corey is excited to be joining the Princeton Chemistry Department as a lecturer in the chemistry department focusing on general chemistry and specifically CHM 207. His background in chemical education includes teaching general chemistry at Harvard University where he helped develop a new introductory chemistry course aimed at a broad liberal arts educational goal beyond the traditional STEM majors and pre-med students. He also has had the opportunity to develop undergraduate research projects at the Harvard Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology and has mentored several undergraduate researchers. He is an atmospheric chemist and has conducted research at the intersection of chemistry, meteorology, and climate. He specializes in chemistry and climate modeling and large-scale data analysis. He received a Ph.D. in chemistry and chemical biology from Harvard University in 2019 where he researched chemistry of the stratosphere and convectively induced ozone loss. As a Postdoctoral Fellow and Research Associate at Harvard University, he expanded the frontiers of his research to include the global distribution of extreme weather and the impacts of climate change.
