PhD, University of Colorado
BS, Ursinus College
Tim D'Andrea received his B.S. in chemistry from Ursinus College in 2003. He continued his education at the University of Colorado, Boulder where he received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in 2008. Since 2008, Tim has been employed at Colorado Mesa University where he is currently an Associate Professor of Chemistry.
D'Andrea regularly teaches several chemistry courses including Analytical Chemistry, Instrumental Analysis, and General Chemistry 1 and 2. In addition to teaching, Tim maintains an active research group. His research interests are in the area of Analytical Chemistry. Specifically, his group uses high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) to identify and quantify thermal decomposition products of iso-alpha acids, which are desirable compounds extracted from hops.
