Welcome to Niko Loening's site
I'm a professor in the chemistry department at Lewis & Clark College. This fall I'm teaching Chem 110 (General Chemistry I) and Chem 320 (Physical Chemistry: Statistical Thermodynamics and Quantum Chemistry). My research interests lie in the development and application of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
Before coming to the college, I worked as a post-doctoral research fellow with Bob Griffin at MIT and before that I was at the University of Cambridge where I worked on my PhD thesis under James Keeler. I spent the 2006-2007 academic year on a research sabbatical at the Medical Research Council - Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK, where I worked on determining protein structures using NMR spectroscopy. More recently, I spent the 2010-2011 academic year on a research sabbatical in Berlin, Germany, working at the Leibniz Institute für Molekulare Pharmakologie, in Australia in Spring 2012 leading a Lewis & Clark College Overseas Program, and in Berlin in Fall 2015 leading another Lewis & Clark College Overseas Program.
