RT Lodge

Monday, October 14th at 5:00 pm-6:00 pm


Featured Speaker:

Dr. Nathan Duncan

Maryville College "Brewing" 


Join Dr. Nathan Duncan, Associate Professor of Chemistry, discuss his new brewing class at Maryville College. There will be an opportunity to taste the beer that Dr. Duncan and his students have brewed. Dr. Duncan earned his bachelor’s degree in chemistry at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, in 2004.  He then continued at Baylor in the doctoral program in the lab of Dr. Charles Garner, focusing on organic synthesis of tridentate nitrogen ligands for transition metals.  He completed his doctorate in 2009 and began a postdoctoral fellowship at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, researching three dimensional self-assembled covalently bonded polymers, as well as contributing to the team of researchers developing the next-generation caustic side cesium extraction process used to decontaminate legacy radioactive waste.

Explore Dr. Duncan's "Professor's Picks" of RT Lodge's Seasonal beers that will be available at the bar. We hope that you join us for the upcoming fireside chat!
