Dr. Emily Daniels Weiss joined the Carnegie Mellon community in 2009 and the Eberly Center in 2015 after completing her graduate studies. She consults with CMU instructors on teaching and learning, designs and facilitates numerous programs, and leads the development, implementation, and assessment of many other Eberly projects. Emily’s pedagogical interests focus on developing and promoting active and inclusive teaching and learning strategies, as well as encouraging reflective and metacognitive practices for learning.

Emily earned her B.S. in chemistry, with a double major in German, from Wittenberg University and her master’s and doctorate from the Department of Chemistry at Carnegie Mellon University. Her doctoral research focused on the synthesis and physical characterization of semiconducting polymers for organic electronics. She has taught two courses at CMU: Evidence-Based Teaching in STEM for graduate students, and EUREKA! Discovery and Its Impact for first year undergrads, both in the Mellon College of Science.
