He did postdoctoral work at the Universite’ Joseph Fourier in France. His graduate work involved laser-induced fluorescence studies and spectral simulations. More recent research projects involved semiclassical dynamics simulations.  

Dr. Lo’s main interest is in improving science education. He has published in the Journal of Chemical Education and the Chemical Educator. In 1999, he co-developed an online homework system used by thousands of high school and college chemistry students worldwide. An improved version of the system is currently accessible at http://i-assign.com.  Dr. Lo’s recent projects include a professional development program for high school physical science teachers (sponsored by the Louisiana Systemic Initiatives Program) and the development of video assessment library for Chemistry (http://chemqa.blogspot.com). He is the director for the Region I tournament of the Louisiana science olympiad (http:// www.nicholls.edu/scienceolympiad), which serves New Orleans and surrounding parishes (counties).

 Dr. Michael A. Janusa received his B.S. from Louisiana Tech University in 1985 and a Ph.D. from Louisiana State University in 1993.
