Bio

Kara Jaremko received a BS degree in Chemistry from the University of Richmond in 2011 and a PhD in Organic Chemistry from the University of California- San Diego in 2016. Her research interests are in the area of chemical biology: using synthetic chemistry to help answer questions about biological systems. In particular, she wants to unravel the activities and specificities of enzymes involved in natural product biosynthesis. Being able to understand and ultimately manipulate the production of natural products has applications ranging from biofuels to pharmaceuticals. Her teaching interests include organic chemistry, biochemistry, science for non-majors, and generally, the enhancement of STEM education with active learning.
