Michael Samide

Professor - Chemistry Chemistry and Biochemistry - LAS

After teaching at Indiana University for 2 years as a visiting Assistant Professor, Michael made the move north in August 2000 to begin teaching analytical and general chemistry at Butler.  Mike's current interests are focused on the intersection of chemistry and art conservation science.  Since 2014, Mike has partnered with the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields to perform research on materials used for the storage and display of artwork.  Mike also teaches courses on chemistry and art that incorporate short-term faculty led study abroad experiences so that students can see how culture and history impact the topic.  In addition, Mike has taught classes that center of chemistry and energy and chemistry and fermentation; both of these courses also involved a study abroad experience and we co-taught with Stacy O'Reilly (Professor of Chemistry).
