TAMU Chemistry Professor Backgrounds
TAMU's Department of Chemistry Alphabetical Faculty Listing will provide some information on faculty degrees and research interests, but more importantly it links to the individual webpages of faculty with much more information. The professor may even have their CV (or Curriculum Vitae) posted on their website.
Directory of Graduate Research - “The ACS Directory of Graduate Research (DGR) is the most comprehensive source of information on chemical research and researchers at universities in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.” This source typically lists information on degrees, postdocs, and research interests.
The sources above will provide information about degrees and research interests. Finding their mentor (i.e., PhD advisor) might be a little more challenging, so here are a few approaches:
1. The advisor might be listed on their webpage along with their PhD and dissertation title.
2. If they have a CV posted, check the CV.
3. Search Proquest Dissertations & Theses for their PhD (using their name and school). Proquest Dissertations & Theses indexes (i.e., citation and abstract only) dissertations and theses awarded in North America and selectively for some other countries. Some of the dissertations will be in full-text and the advisor will be listed as the Chair of the dissertation committee.
4. If those three don't work, you might just contact the professor and ask them.
