Dave Bruns comes to Emory from Vanderbilt University. Dave appreciated that Vandy—like Emory—offers “outstanding academics and great athletic programs that are not football.” After graduation, Dave worked for a year and he is excited to get back into the classroom. Dave says, “I chose Emory because the faculty were proactive in reaching out to me during the decision-making process and made it clear that they were concerned with developing me into the best chemist I can be. The beautiful new building also played a considerable role in my decision.” After Emory, Dave’s dream job would include teaching, whether as a research professor or lecturer.

Research Interests: Catalyst development, mechanistic and kinetic studies of catalytic conversions

Divisions of Interest: Inorganic, Organic, Physical

What makes Dave Unique: I once had a mullet that gave Joe Dirt’s a run for its money.
