- B.S. in chemistry, Montclair State University
- M.S. and Ph.D. in chemistry, University of California
Dr. Dedeian (also known as Dr. D by his students) teaches general chemistry and advanced inorganic chemistry along with the accompanying laboratories. He has also taught materials chemistry, analytical chemistry, laboratory safety, and senior seminar.
Immediately prior to DelVal, Dr. Dedeian conducted research at the Army Research Laboratory in Maryland where he built and studied the performance of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). He also has several years of industrial experience, having worked as a research chemist at Hoffmann-LaRoche in New Jersey and as an engineer in the electronics and micromachining industries in California.
Dr. Dedeian is currently improving existing and developing new experiments for general and inorganic chemistry. Some of his scientific interests include the design and synthesis of organometallic complexes with targeted electronic and excited state properties and also molecular electronic device fabrication including dye-sensitized solar cells and light-emitting electrochemical cells.
