Before pursuing her graduate studies, Dr. Robbins tested catalysts for heavy hydrocarbon cracking at UOP in Des Plaines, IL. Her graduate work, under the guidance of Scott Phillips, focused on the design and synthesis of depolymerizable polymers for applications in point-of-care diagnostics. Dr. Robbins was an Assistant Professor at Coker College in Hartsville, SC for four years before coming to Simon’s Rock in 2018.
