What Educators Are Saying

"I am a big fan of your products. I use Vernier products for almost the entirety of my second semester general chemistry lab. The products are user-friendly and they greatly reduce the amount of hazardous waste my courses generate."

Michael J. Ferguson, Ph.D.

"I would like to thank Vernier for being the top company for science education technology. I have never been disappointed in the technology, sensors, and data collecting devices. You have always had the interests of science education at the heart of your engineering designs, products and services."

Charles W. Handlon

Century High School, Rochester, MN

"I just completed the first two labs from the Chemistry with Vernier lab book. Thanks for such user-friendly and clear labs."

Lisa Monahan

Liberty Bell High School, Winthrope, WA

We’re Chemists. We’re Educators. We Are Your Team.

Elaine Nam, Ph.D.

Elaine Nam, Ph.D.

Director of Chemistry

Elaine earned her B.A. in Chemistry from Pomona College, her M.S. in Chemistry from San Francisco State, and her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Washington, where her research focused on synthesis of cysteinate-ligated non-heme iron enzyme analogues reproducing key spectroscopic features. As a laboratory instructor for general chemistry at the University of Washington, her teaching experience included the use of TI calculators with LabPro and Vernier probeware.

Elaine serves as a volunteer on the Executive Committee for the local Portland section of the American Chemical Society and as a volunteer for Willamette West Habitat for Humanity. During the winter months, Elaine can be found snowshoeing and snowboarding.

Melissa Hill, Ph.D.

Melissa Hill, Ph.D.

Chemistry Staff Scientist

Melissa has seven years of teaching experience, and her courses included general chemistry, biochemistry, organic chemistry, and spectroscopy for undergraduate and graduate college students. She earned her B.S. in Biochemistry from St. Edward’s University and her Ph.D. in Biophysical Chemistry from the University of California at Davis. Melissa’s dissertation focused on time-resolved spectroscopy of proteins that ranged from femtoseconds to hours.

Serving on Vernier’s Health and Wellness committee, Melissa helps to organize Vernier’s annual summer fitness challenge. Melissa also volunteers at Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals, assisting with pet adoptions and with the care of rescued animals.
