About Mikhail M. Goldin
Dr. Mikhail (Mike) Goldin was born in Moscow, Russia in 1982, but has lived in the U.S. since 2000. Prior to joining the LU faculty in 2008, he taught chemistry and mathematics part-time for five years at Kellogg Community College in Battle Creek, Michigan. His research interest is in studying the electrochemical aspects of interaction of porous and surface-modified electrodes with aqueous solutions and other media and electrochemically controlling this interaction for medical and environmental applications. Goldin earned his Ph.D. in chemistry from Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia in Moscow, though the majority of his doctoral research tookplace at LU's Biology/Chemistry Department. His passion is teaching chemistry in a way that makes sense and glorifies God. Therefore, he has an abiding interest in chemical education and in integrating the Biblical worldview into his teaching. His other interests are creation science, theology and practical Christian living in the context of marriage.
