FGCU Emergency Management Advisory

Oct. 3, 2022 | All FGCU classes, including online modalities, as well as non-essential campus activities are cancelled through Sunday, Oct. 9. We return to normal operations Monday, Oct. 10, and full details on the calendar will be announced Tuesday, Oct. 4. It remains vital to our success that we hear from ALL students, faculty and staff so we can assess needs and move forward with reopening campus. Call the FGCU Storm Recovery Call Center at (239) 310-5398 or complete the self check-in survey as soon as possible.

Davies, Kevin (Ph.D.)

Associate Professor
Department of Chemistry & Physics

SH 0437
 General/Analytical Chemistry, Instrumental Analysis, Lasers in Physical Science

Dr. Davies received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from The University of Pittsburgh, where he studied the use of the photoacoustic effect to probe photoinitiated reactions. He has since adapted these methods to develop and identify molecules that serve as effective biomedical imaging reporter molecules, and allow chemical sensing to occur in cloudy solutions and substances. As an analytical chemist, he is interested in a wide range of chemical measurement issues, and has developed training systems for Fortune 500 companies, harvested emplaced landmines in Cambodia and examined their composition and how they degrade in contact with soils, and published work in chemical education pertaining to better ways to train students and employees in performing chemical measurements.
In teaching, Dr. Davies uses "flipped classroom" and "active learning" strategies in his courses, and publishes research in these methodologies. He centers his teaching in the General and Analytical Chemistry components of the curriculum.
