About Joshua A. Enszer

Joshua Enszer is an Assistant Professor of Instruction in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Delaware. He earned his B.S. (2005) in Chemical Engineering from Michigan Technological University and his M.S. (2008) and Ph.D. (2010) in Chemical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame. In 2011, he was the Interim Coordinator for the First-Year Engineering program at Notre Dame. From 2011 to 2015 he worked as a Lecturer in the Department of Chemical, Biochemical, & Environmental Engineering at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. In 2013 he became the first non-tenure-track faculty member to be named a UMBC Academic Innovation Fellow. He joined the faculty at the University of Delaware in 2015. His research interests are in the scholarship of teaching and learning, particularly in gamification and game-based learning, writing across the curriculum, and chemical process safety education. He also serves as an academic consultant for the AIChE Center for Chemical Process Safety.
