John A. Goodwin, who serves as a Professor of chemistry, received his Ph.D. degree in inorganic chemistry from Rice University in 1988. After accomplishing postdoctoral research in England with A. G. Sykes at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and at the University of Notre Dame with W. R. Scheidt, and holding teaching positions at Illinois Wesleyan University and Eckerd College, he joined the Department of Chemistry and Physics at Coastal Carolina University in 1996. His expertise in chemical research is in the area of redox catalysts, including metalloporphyrin-mediated oxygen activation, making use of the synthesis of novel homogeneous and heterogeneous systems, air-sensitive manipulations, X-ray crystallography, electrochemistry, rapid and traditional kinetics, spectroscopy, computational chemistry, and separations. His expertise in science education is in curriculum development for college chemistry using active-learning strategies such as the process-oriented guided-inquiry learning (POGIL) pedagogy.
