Biography

Dr. Sharon K. Hamilton earned a B.S. in Chemistry from Auburn University in 2004 and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Vanderbilt University in 2009. She completed her Post-doctoral fellowship at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Biomedical Engineering and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. She started her academic career at her alma mater and was an Instructor and Researcher at Auburn University before joining the Department of Chemistry and Physics at Delta State University in Mississippi. She joined the faculty at Ouachita Baptist University in 2018 and received funding for her research from the Arkansas INBRE in 2019. The Hamilton laboratory has recently focused on the development of bioresponsive fiber mats containing synthetic biomolecule analogs.

Dr. Sara Hubbard is originally from Oklahoma City, Okla. After earning her Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Wyoming, she participated in a postdoctoral fellowship at Wichita State University before beginning work at Ouachita in 2009.

Dr. Hubbard was delighted to find opportunities to learn about the chemistry of art, which led to the development of a non-majors course on the Chemistry of Art, new arts-based lab experiences for her chemistry courses, and a sabbatical working in the Conservation Science Lab at the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields (2017). Dr. Hubbard’s recent research at Ouachita has focused monitoring the release of BPA (bisphenol A) from plastics and other materials.

In her personal time, Dr. Hubbard enjoys reading, playing violin (poorly), singing (slightly less poorly) and traveling.
