MEET THE INSTRUCTORS:
Program Director, Global Green Chemistry Innovation and Network Program, Yale Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering
While Dr. Mellor wears many hats at the Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering, her primary role is to lead educational efforts and translate research into teaching tools to educate diverse audiences in green chemistry, sustainability and safer chemical design. She designs online materials for students and professionals, develops interactive tools for teachers and students at the undergraduate and high school levels, and teaches Introduction to Green Chemistry along with Paul Anastas, the father of green chemistry. Mellor has a Ph.D. in biology from the University of Virginia, where she investigated resistance of feedstocks to various biotic and abiotic stresses.
Richard Morgan, MS
Senior Process Chemist, Modumetal
Richard Morgan is a senior process chemist at Modumetal, where he works with research, development and scale-up of metal coatings and surface-finishing processes of advanced nanotech coating systems. Previously, as a chemist at Boeing Defense, Space & Security and senior chemist at Aerojet Rocketdyne, Morgan developed and characterized aerospace propellants and fire suppression systems and maintained metal finishing and surface coatings for space vehicles. Since 2006, he has taught introductory chemistry classes at Lake Washington Technical College, advising on councils for energy and science technician and engineering technician degrees. Morgan is the principal for Rick Morgan Technical Consulting.
