In July 2010, the department named Corina E. Rogge, Ph.D., as its new Andrew W. Mellon Assistant Professor of Conservation Science. A highly decorated young scientist, Rogge came to Buffalo State from Rice University in Houston, Texas, where she was the Wiess Instructor of Chemistry. Rogge earned both her doctoral and master of science degrees in chemistry from Yale University. She performed post-doctoral research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
“Corina Rogge is a wonderful addition to our world-renowned staff,” said Patrick Ravines, department director. “We are very appreciative of the continued support and generosity that allows us to expand our curriculum and the opportunities we provide our students.”
