Assistant Teaching Professor

Dr. Siaw received her B.S in Biochemistry from Biola University and her Ph.D. in Chemistry from UC Santa Barbara in 2013 where her research was focused on inorganic materials synthesis of ZnO thin films. She combines her love of materials science with her biochemistry and inorganic chemistry academic backgrounds to encourage interdisciplinary learning, and applies her diverse scientific training to the field of biomimetic synthesis. Aside from loving to nurture and encourage the passions of future scientists and engineers, she enjoys baking, painting and playing with her two sons.
