Welcome to Heychemistry.com! This is a free online resource designed with the student in mind. Heychem’s mission is to further understanding of chemical theory, application, and background.


My name is Melinda and I run this blog. I really enjoy writing about science and education when I can. This is a side project, and I get to it when I can. I’m always wanting to do more! 


Heychemistry is created in part because of the these educators’ experience. Please explore their own individual pathways. Thanks to them and the rest of the OSU chemistry department for their instruction and support.

Dr. May Nyman earned her PhD in chemistry from the University of New Mexico in 1997. Before joining the Oregon State community, Nyman worked in NM as a staff chemist for Sandia National Laboratories. Nyman is interested in, “aqueous metal-oxo clusters”. Learn more at her official lab website →. 

Dr. Sean Burrows earned his PhD in chemistry from Texas Tech University in 2009 and has since proved his enthusiasm for his discipline. Now employing optics and lasers, Burrows is researching effective ways to fight the progression of cancer.

Dr. Maduka Ogba earned his PhD in chemistry at Oregon State University in 2016. After completing his doctorate, Ogba went to perform his post-grad fellowship at Pomona College from 2016-2018. Currently, Ogba is an assistant professor at Schmid College of Science and Technology at Chapman University. Learn more at his official lab website →
