About James M. LoBue

Jim LoBue earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Carleton College in 1978 and his PhD from Wesleyan University (in Connecticut not Georgia) in 1986. His graduate work involved the study of van der Waals molecules using microwave spectroscopy in a molecular beam under the direction of Dr. Stewart Novick. He then worked as a post doctoral associate at Yale University in the laboratory of Dr. Stephen D. Colson (now of Batelle Northwest Laboratories) where he studied pyrolysis in a modified pulsed jet expansion using VUV photoionization and TOF mass spectrometry. From the fall of 1988 through the summer of 1993 he was a faculty member in the Chemistry Department at Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, and in the fall of 1993 he and his family (wife Nan, daughter Audrey, and son Ernie) arrived in Statesboro. He has been a faculty member at Georgia Southern ever since. Except for one year he has taught physical chemistry every year since 1988.
