Jeffrey Moore’s research, motivated by the technological need for safer materials that last longer, integrates ideas from physical organic chemistry and engineering with molecular design and polymer synthesis to construct new functional materials. Dedicated to the development of next-generation scientists and educators, Moore has also recently combined his passion for teaching with his expertise in the lab to study and change the way students learn in the classroom. He is developing a sequence of chemistry courses for pre-health students as a pathway to biochemistry that builds a strong foundation of molecular understanding and scientific reasoning skills and promotes curiosity-driven learning.
