About the Author

On September 14, 1978, I was born to Josephine and John D'Angelo. I was blessed with an enormously happy childhood, with two brothers and lots of cousins nearby and friends to play with, rarely was I bored or alone. A third brother, sadly, watches over all of us and I truly hope that one day I will meet him in paradise. In my junior year in High School (1994-1995), I took chemistry. It was here that the seeds for my career were planted, watered, and fertilized and for that I thank Mr. Joe Dixon sincerely. After graduating, I went to SUNY Stony Brook, with the intentions of becoming a High School teacher, myself. However, after taking Organic, I was hooked and switched gears to become a college teacher. After graduating in the year 2000, I went on to the University of Connecticut where I received my Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry under Michael B. Smith in 2005 and subsequently immediately began a Post-Doc at The Johns Hopkins University in the lab of the late Gary H. Posner. In August 2007, I joined the faculty of the Chemistry Department at Alfred University. In 2013, I was awarded tenure and promotion to Associate professor of Chemistry, my current rank. This is the third book I have authored. The first was the first edition of this book and the second was a book I co-authored with my Ph.D. advisor called Hybrid Retrysynthesis: Organic Synthesis using Reaxys and Scifinder. I am currently working on a text for organic chemistry classes with the online text publisher, Top Hat, and expect this text will be available in Fall 2018. This second edition would make four books and I am currently planning a fifth which would be a workbook for scientific ethics training seminars.
