2016 Curriculum Grant-RAMAN spectroscopy and modeling
In Fall 2016, Dr. Zemke and Dr. Hannah Leverentz received a grant to improve the curriculum in the Physical Chemistry sequence by building a cheap, modular, and effective RAMAN spectrometer. Students will begin building and calibrating the spectrometer in Spring 2016. Additionally, this grant will be used to update curriculum regarding computationally modelling RAMAN spectra for in-class, student-generated research projects. We thank the WSU Foundation for their award.

As you can see from this list, Dr. Zemke has teaching interests that span general, inorganic and physical chemistry. She is also interested in teaching chemical and science education courses as well as integrating herself into the travel study program at WSU.
Dr. Zemke runs all of her current courses off of D2L Brightspace
