Biography:Spartalian's research is primarily in the area of magnetic measurements on biomolecules and related model complexes containing transition metal ions. Experimental data collected by Mšssbauer spectroscopy, electron paramagnetic resonance, and magnetic susceptibility measurements are fitted to theoretical models with specific emphasis on the electronic structure at the metal site. He holds an A.B. degree from Princeton University and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Carnegie-Mellon University. He has published several articles in the Journal of Inorganic Chemistry. Most recently he has been engaged in research involving web-based physics instruciton through computer simulations.
