Dr. Neuberger has been the Director of Laboratories since 2015 and is frequently referred to as “the lab goddess”. She began working at Loyola in 2012 as an extraordinary faculty member. Her main responsibilities are making sure the undergraduate labs are prepped for, maintaining instrumentation and teaching various courses for the Chemistry & Biochemistry department. Dr. Neuberger is a proud alumnus of Loyola University New Orleans (dual B.S. in Chemistry and Sociology ‘07) and is delighted to be back at her alma mater working hard to support the Chemistry & Biochemistry department and its mission to provide quality education to all of its students. Dr. Neuberger has attended the National Science Foundation workshops for Chemistry and Art and Advanced Chemistry and Art.

Dr. Neuberger is an inorganic photochemist who always needs more metal in her life.
