Dr. Trygstad's Academic Background:

Dr. Trygstad's post-secondary education began at St. Olaf College, where he earned his B.A. as a double major in Chemistry and Biology in May of 2002.  He then attended graduate school in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, earning his Ph.D. in the summer of 2007.  While at the University of Minnesota, he conducted research focused on natural products organic synthesis under the direction of Prof. Craig J. Forsyth, Ph.D.  His Ph.D. Thesis is entitled:  Versatile Synthesis of the C3-C14 Domain of 7-Deoxyokadaic Acid and Strategic Analogues.

He joined the Department of Chemistry and Physical Sciences at The College of St. Scholastica as an Assistant Professor in August of 2007.  He subsequently was granted tenure and promoted to Associate Professor in August of 2013.  His current research focuses on the development of undergraduate organic chemistry instructional laboratory experiments, with particular focus on substitution reactions of allylic systems and chalcone enolate chemistry.
