Dr. Kyle Grice obtained his Bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Harvey Mudd College in 2005. He then worked in the lab of Dr. Karen Goldberg at the University of Washington in Seattle and earned his PhD in 2010. From 2011 to 2013 Dr. Grice was a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California at San Diego, in the laboratory of Professor Clifford Kubiak. Since 2013, he has been a professor at DePaul University in Chicago, and was promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure in 2019.
Dr. Grice’s teaching includes general chemistry, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, instrumental analysis lab, and bioinorganic chemistry. With a professor from the Department of Biological Sciences, Dr. Grice co-runs a research-based study abroad program called “From Atoms to Ecology: Science is Global”. He has also been an ACS Science Coach and worked with a local high school teacher. In spring of 2020, Dr. Grice taught inorganic lecture and lab fully on-line and co-taught instrumental analysis fully online.
Dr. Grice runs a collaborative research group with undergraduates and Masters students. Research in the Grice lab focuses on the roles of metals in carbon dioxide reduction, bioinorganic chemistry, and C-H activation. He has published 13 peer-reviewed journal articles with DePaul students as co-authors.
