Alan K. Van Orden
Professor Van Orden was born in Champaigne, Illinois and raised in Pocatello, Idaho. After graduating from high school in 1984, he attended Idaho State University for one year, and then transferred to Brigham Young University, where he received a B.S. degree in Chemistry in 1990. He attended graduate school in the Chemistry Department at the University of California-Berkeley and received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in 1996. This was followed by a three year stint as a postdoctoral researcher at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.
In 1999, Professor Van Orden joined the Chemistry faculty of Colorado State University where he has taught graduate and undergraduate courses in Physical, Analytical, and General Chemistry. He also supervises a group of student research scientists who specialize in applying the techniques of Physical and Analytical Chemistry to the study of biological molecules and nanometer sized semiconductor particles. Professor Van Orden and his research group have published over 30 manuscripts in the scientific literature.
