evonne-baldauff-jproAfter earning a B.S. (2000, Grove City College) and Ph.D. (2004, Purdue University) in Inorganic Chemistry, Evonne Baldauff began teaching at Waynesburg University in 2007.  As an educator she decidedly attempts to promote learning by engaging students in research and service in addition to the traditional classroom experience.  She and her research students are currently attempting to understand why coffee tastes so good —  from a chemical perspective.  Baldauff has served as the advisor to the Waynesburg University American Chemical Society (ACS) Student Chapter for 9 years and currently serves as the Pittsburgh ACS Section Chair.  These two groups work to make chemistry more accessible to students and communities through numerous outreach events.  At home, Baldauff spends a lot of time in her kitchen, cooking or baking for her husband, son, and friends.
