Matthew Hartings is a materials chemist and food scientist. His research aims to develop new materials (for 3D printing and environmental monitoring) and explore how materials are made by biology (biomineralization). Dr. Hartings is also an expert on food and cooking chemistry. His book, Chemistry in Your Kitchen, details all of the wonderful chemistry we do whenever stepping into a kitchen.
Dr. Hartings is currently the American University PI of the NSF-funded RECIPES Network. Through this role he is fortunate to advocate for the AU researchers working towards understanding and mitigating food waste. Further, as the lead on the educational efforts for this project, he gets to see first-hand the amazing work being done on course development, engaging with students from underserved populations, and publication of student research.
