Biography

Kagna Ouch Sampson received her Ph.D. in 2012 from the University of Louisville under Craig A.Grapperhaus. She joined the adjunct chemistry instructor at Indiana University Southeast in 2012, was selected as a visiting lecturer of Inorganic chemistry in 2014, and was promoted to full-time lecturer in 2015. Then she will be promoted to senior lecturer in 2022. Her teaching interests include non-major and major in science chemistry I and II with the laboratory and upper-level inorganic chemistry. Her specific areas of interest include Carbon-Sulfur Bond Formation/Cleavage Reactions of Metal-Stabilized Thiyl Radicals by Electrochemical and Chemical Methods.
