Short Bio

For fun, Draeger likes to take advantage of Bradford's winter weather, so he goes skiing at Holiday Valley. He has a personal gym in his house and he averages about ten miles a week on his treadmill to get into shape. His favorite snack used to be McDonald's, but he has since changed his preference to "anything from Snackwells."

Academic Focus

Dr. Draeger has been with Pitt-Bradford since 1987. Before coming to Pitt-Bradford, he worked for the Department of Energy. In fact, he would still be at the government agency if he hadn't become a professor. He teaches general chemistry I and II, physical chemistry I and II, organic chemistry, and computational chemistry.

Research, Accomplishments, and Publications

Dr. Draeger has received recognition from The National Academy of Sciences and participated in the professional exchange with the Academy of Sciences in Beijing, China, in the summer of 1996.
