  • My name is Nick Stambach and I am a fourth year graduate student in the Chemistry Department, pursuing a doctarate. Prior to coming to Mines, I earned a Bachelor's degree in chemistry and a Master's degree in Secondary Science Education from Virginia Tech. I then went on to teach four years of high school chemistry in Virginia. This year I will be working with MLK Jr. Early College, helping with engineering instruction.  In my free time I like to play lacrosse.
