Associate Professor and Von Soosten Chair
Prior to joining the University of San Francisco, Dr. Meloni
carried out post-doctoral research at the University of California,
Berkeley and at Sandia National Laboratories. In his research, he
employed state-of-the-art experimental and computational
techniques, to study semiconductor clusters, van der Waals species,
and hydrocarbon radicals. Dr. Meloni's interests range
from high-temperature physical chemistry to spectroscopic
characterization of reaction intermediates. More recently, his
research group performs experiments at the Advanced Light Source of
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory using a multiplex
photoionization mass spectrometer to investigate biofuel molecules
combustion and atmospheric reactions.
Dr. West joined USF after postdoctoral work at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). He teaches analytical and general chemistry courses and labs. His research interests include electrochemistry, surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy, nanotechnology, organic electronics and chemical sensing for the detection of biomarkers, environmental pollutants and chemical warfare agents. The overall goal is the development of inexpensive, reliable and portable biosensors.
