Elaine M Marzluff



Professor Marzluff teaches Physical Chemistry (CHM 363, 364), General 
Chemistry (CHM 129), Inorganic & Analytical Chemistry (CHM 210) as well as 
the Policy Studies seminar (PST320) and the Advanced Policy Research 
course (PST 420). Professor Marzluff's research focuses on the structure 
and dynamics of peptides and proteins in both solution and gas phase. 
With support from NSF-TUES program, she is working to develop modular 
curricular materials for physical chemistry that introduce students to 
kinetics, quantum mechanics and spectroscopy using a context-rich 
pedagogy. Marzluff Summer Research 2014
