Dr. Clare Muhoro is currently an Associate Professor at Towson University who makes chemistry cool, by connecting the dots to create a bigger picture for her students. She uses her Kenyan based field research to show her students that chemistry does not have to confine them to a classroom or lab. Her collective findings have helped scientists study and find solutions to environmental effects of pesticides. Her research has even aided in the creation of policies to prevent future pollution.
Dr. Muhoro is also a Science Partnerships Advisor in the U.S. Global Development Lab at USAID and earned her Ph.D in Organometallic Chemistry from Yale University. —MB
