Coastal Carolina University professor receives Fulbright for study in India

  John Reilly  
John Reilly, assistant professor of chemistry at Coastal Carolina University, has been awarded a Fulbright-Nehru grant to teach in India during the 2009-2010 academic year. He will teach physical chemistry, with the addition of an ethics and writing component, at the University of Rajasthan in Jaipur, India.

Reilly is one of 1,100 U.S. educators and professionals who will travel abroad through the Fulbright Scholar Program. Established in 1946 under legislation introduced by the late Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, the program is designed to build mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the rest of the world.

In addition to the typical physical chemistry curriculum, Reilly has added an ethics component on the history, development and use of nuclear weapons. Students will read, discuss and write about the broader ethical issues surrounding the development of nuclear capabilities. Reilly earned a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Johns Hopkins University. He did postdoctoral work at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland, and at Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia. Reilly also worked in the flavor and fragrance industry for such companies as Colgate-Palmolive, International Flavors and Fragrances, and Symrise Inc., where he worked for several years as a fragrance chemist.

Reilly joined the Coastal Carolina University faculty in 2006. He is currently conducting research relating to photochemotherapy.
