    Assistant Professor | Analytical and Physical Chemistry


Lynetta Mier is an assistant professor of chemistry at Regis University. She received her PhD in physical chemistry from The Ohio State University studying excited state electron transfer reactions using ultrafast spectroscopy. After completing her PhD work she served as a Postdoctoral Faculty Fellow at Boston University developing physical and analytical chemistry laboratory curriculum and researching solvent dynamics of supercritical fluids using ultrafast rotational Raman spectroscopy. At Regis University, Lynetta mentors undergraduate research projects investigating the mechanism of cell death by photodynamic cancer therapy drugs using spectroscopy and chromatography. Lynetta is also actively involved in curriculum development and the research of teaching chemistry in higher education. 

Lynetta is passionate about spectroscopy, inclusive undergraduate education, light-initiated reactions, and mentoring students in a one-on-one fashion. Her work has won her multiple teaching and mentorship awards. Her undergraduate research has been presented at multiple national and regional conferences and her work with undergraduate chemistry education has been presented, published, and adapted by chemistry departments at Montana State University and High Point University.
