Professor Naumiec joined the UCA Department of Chemistry in summer 2015 as a professor to teach organic chemistry and organic spectroscopy. Greg and his wife Erin are both originally from upstate New York and they have a four-year old daughter named Amelia.
Following his undergraduate and graduate degrees in New York and Rhode Island, respectively, Greg worked for several years on synthesizing medical imaging agents during his postdoctoral appointment at NIH in Maryland.
Here at UCA, Dr. Naumiec and his students are researching the synthesis of drugs to treat neglected tropical diseases.
Greg’s early success in the classroom teaching organic chemistry results from his approachable nature and clear teaching style.
UCA students across many majors are directly benefiting from Dr. Naumiec’s passion and skill as a teacher in both the classroom and the lab.
