On November 8, 2021, Michael Campbell, assistant professor of chemistry, was announced as one of eight Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars for 2021. The award, which includes an unrestricted research grant of $75,000, recognizes young faculty in the chemical sciences who have created an outstanding independent body of scholarship and are deeply committed to undergraduate education. Professor Campbell was selected for this distinct honor, in part, because of his research paper “Chemistry of Dinuclear Silver Complexes,” which was published in Angewandte Chemie International Edition, a journal of the German Chemical Society, in October 2021.
Professor Campbell has been with the Barnard Chemistry department since 2016, during which time he has published extensively on dinuclear silver complexes. Before joining Barnard’s faculty, he researched electrically conductive metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) while completing his postdoctoral fellowship at MIT.
