Professor Michael Garvey received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from UW-Milwaukee, where he worked under the guidance of Prof. Wilfred Tysoe. He earned his B.S. degree at UW-Oshkosh, where he majored in chemistry and physics. He joined the Marian community in 2016 and he regularly teaches general physics courses and physical chemistry, and this year he began co-directing the Honors Program. He is currently seeking collaborative research opportunities in which he can apply and expand his computational modeling expertise, and at home he enjoys trying to teach his daughters science. He has contributed to 19 peer-reviewed articles in journals including Nature Communications, The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, Tribology Letters, and The Journal of Physical Chemistry C.
