Dr. Barrett earned his B.S. in chemistry from Muskingum University and a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After serving as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the College of the Holy Cross, Dr. Barrett joined the faculty at Muskingum University as a physical inorganic chemist.
Dr. Barrett teaches General Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Advanced Laboratory in Chemistry, and Senior Seminar. Dr. Barrett's research uses light- active transition metal compounds to produce chemical fuels used in alternative energy applications.
Dr. Barrett is the advisor for the American Chemical Society (ACS) Student Affiliate Club and for Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) National Leadership Honor Society. Dr. Barrett also works closely with the Choose Ohio First (COF) Scholarship Program on science outreach.
