Seth Anthony was born in Durham and grew up on the hypotenuse of the Research Triangle. He graduated from North Carolina State University with his undergraduate degree in chemistry, then completed his doctorate in chemistry at Colorado State University with research in chemistry education and physical chemistry. He spent 10 years as faculty at the Oregon Institute of Technology, where he taught general chemistry for engineering students as well as courses on nanoscience and nanotechnology and on the electrochemistry of batteries and fuel cells. At Oregon Tech, he helped to lead efforts in classroom redesign and in general education reform, and then spent a two-year stint as an administrator coordinating accreditation and faculty development efforts before returning to a faculty role when he realized he’d rather be in the classroom than almost anywhere else. He and his wife Eve have two children, Ian and Zoe. He enjoys hiking and cycling.
