The Pathways to Your Career Seminar Series brings visiting speakers to campus to discuss their path from Chemistry degree to their current position, as well as to educate students about opportunities outside of academia. Previous speakers have included representatives from industry, government, academic publishing, and biotechnology start-ups. The series is managed by Prof. Rebekka Klausen and questions may be directed to klausen@jhu.edu.
This speaker is Dr. Darryl A. Boyd. Dr. Boyd is a Research Chemist at the U.S. Naval Research Lab in Washington, DC. He has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan, and master and doctorate degrees from Purdue University.  He began working at NRL following his tenure there as a National Research Council postdoc.
He is the 2020 president of the ACS-affiliated Chemical Society of Washington. Finally, he is the founder of Science Made Simple LLC (and its companion site), a company intended to inspire children to take interest in science.
Although his PhD work was in Inorganic Chemistry, he has spent most of his time at NRL developing novel sulfur-based polymers with unique optical properties. He has co-authored more than 20 papers and has five patent disclosures to his credit. He was named to the 2019 National Academy of Engineering “Frontiers in Engineering Class,” the 2019 SPIE class of “Rising Researchers,’ and the 2018 class of Chemical & Engineering News’s “Talented 12.”
