Dr. Kelly Elkins, assistant professor of chemistry at Towson University in Maryland, will speak on the importance of ethics in education 11 a.m.-noon Tuesday, Sept. 10, in the Carver-Turner Room of the Havener Center.
The lecture is sponsored by S&T’s Center for Science, Technology and Society (CSTS) and is open to the public.
Elkins’ research interest is forensic chemistry. She is the author of “Forensic DNA Biology: A Laboratory Manual,” which gives step-by-step instruction on how to perform forensic DNA analysis.
Elkins earned a Ph.D. in chemistry from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts; was a Fulbright Scholar at the European Media Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany; and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
