Dr. Birgit Albrecht, a native of Germany, received her Ph.D. from the University of Oxford and was a post-doctoral research fellow at Yale University. Dr. Albrecht is committed to continuing to improve the educational experience for Loyola students through peer-led and active learning. She focuses on including technology in her classroom through 3-D printers, Google Cardboard, and other interactive tools; in 2016 she served as co-PI for a National Science Foundation grant to establish a supercomputer on campus, which is now available for the entire Loyola community. Her research interests in physical, theoretical, and computational chemistry focus on computational studies of protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions at the interface of chemistry and biology.
