Lecturer in Chemistry, Department of Chemistry
NIH Postdoctoral Fellow, 1979-1982, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD
Dr. Batchelder teaches Physical Chemistry, Biophysical Chemistry and Introductory Chemistry courses and is also involved in the Tufts Chemistry Outreach Program. She joined the Tufts faculty following a career in industry where she made scientific contributions in the fields of NMR instrument development, pharmaceutical development and regulatory affairs and biotechnology. Her past research interests focused on the development of solid state magnetic resonance techniques combined with stable isotope (2H, 13C and 15N) labeling to study a range of systems - from hydrogen bonded networks in organic solids to protein dynamics of collagen.
