This series is only for first-year students, with each event limited to 10 students so that you can participate in the discussion and ask the questions that are on your mind. Students who attend will have the opportunity to meet outstanding members of the Harvard community over dinner at the Faculty Club. 

 

Gregg Tucci is the Director of Undergraduate Studies in Chemistry and a Senior Lecturer on Chemistry and Chemical Biology.  He received a B.S. in Chemistry from Villanova University and a PhD in Chemistry from Harvard University.   As an undergraduate, Dr. Tucci studied the ability of sphagnum peat to remove heavy metals from mine drainage waters and from this work he received a research award from the Water Pollution Control Association of Pennsylvania. As a graduate student, Dr. Tucci continued to work on problems involving metals and biological systems. Specifically, he developed an inorganic mimic for a nickel enzyme that fixes carbon monoxide. 

Dr. Tucci is actively involved in advising and mentoring undergraduate chemistry majors. He developed and teaches the course Life and Physical Sciences A. Dr. Tucci also co-developed and teaches a graduate level practicum in teaching for first year graduate students in chemistry.
