Dr. Edward Sambriski joined the faculty in the chemistry department in August 2009.  Prior to coming to Delaware Valley University, he worked as a post-doctoral associate in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; His previous teaching experience includes courses in chemistry, physics, and chemical engineering.

At Delaware Valley University, Dr. Sambriski teaches lecture and laboratory courses in general and physical chemistry.  As an advocate for learning-by-doing, Dr. Sambriski focuses on an active-learning style that elicits student participation and promotes collaborative, task-based activities.  To make chemistry more meaningful to students, he draws upon examples from across disciplines to illustrate its role as the central science.

Throughout his career, Dr. Sambriski has been involved in interdisciplinary projects.  His research interests are in the areas of macromolecular science, molecular self-assembly, statistical mechanics, biotechnology, nanoscale science, and molecular modeling.  His research specializes in high-throughput computer modeling and simulations.  He holds collaborations with research universities nationally and abroad.
