Annette Neuman

Assistant Professor of Chemistry

Annette Neuman is Assistant Professor of Chemistry. She received her B.S. in Chemistry from Davidson College in 2004 and her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Emory University in 2013. Her dissertation was in the area of medicinal chemistry, where she prepared new substances with potential antiviral properties for use in hepatitis C virus and HIV therapies.

Dr. Neuman joined Oxford in the fall of 2012. She teaches courses in general and organic chemistry. Her research focuses on developing new synthetic methods for triazoles, which are molecules containing carbon, nitrogen, and hydrogen atoms with important medicinal properties. She has presented posters at regional conferences with undergraduate students. She also studies student achievement and attitudes in chemistry classes for non-science majors.

In her spare time, Dr. Neuman enjoys running, hiking, swimming, and spending time with her family. She lives in Atlanta with her husband Rob and their son Michael.
