Personal profile

Dr Bedgood completed his Chemistry BS at George Mason U, Virginia, USA and his PhD in Inorganic Chemistry at Montana State U.  Following one year teaching Post Doc at the U of Illinois (with Steve Zumdahl), Dan served as ARC Research Associate at U of Queensland (with John Hall and Trevor Appleton); this project examined interactions of small amino acids and polypeptides with Pd analogues of known anticancer agents.  Following this research work Dan filled teaching roles at North Carolina State U and Arizona State U, as well as Head of Chemistry at Lenoir Community College (Kinston NC).

Dr Bedgood earned teaching awards at several universities, and led the Chemistry Teaching Team (Charles Sturt University) to VC Team Teaching Awards in 2003 and 2011.  Since 2002 awarded grants, with teams of colleagues, have totalled $1,000,000 and led to 12 refereed publications in chemical education and 20 refereed papers in chemistry research.
