Joseph Maloy

Joseph T. Maloy, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Chemistry and Catholic Studies

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry


Dr. Maloy is an expert in the area of analytical chemistry and computer modelling of chromatographic behavior.

Dr. Joseph T. Maloy is Associate Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Catholic Studies at Seton Hall University. As a member of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, he developed CORE 3250/CHEM 3101 Foundations of Modern Science, a Signature III course designed for science majors. Currently holding a joint appointment in the Department of Catholic Studies, he is developing a similar Core III course, CAST 4295 ST (CAST3251) Science and the Church, intended for non-science majors. Prior to joining the Seton Hall faculty in 1979, he was an Associate Professor of Chemistry at West Virginia University. In each of these university positions he has taught general chemistry courses at the lower division level and analytical and physical chemistry courses at the upper division and graduate levels.

Dr. Maloy received his pre-Vatican II liberal arts education at Saint Vincent College (Latrobe, PA) where he majored in mathematics; he received his post-Sputnik graduate education at the University of Texas at Austin where he studied physical electrochemistry. His most recent expertise lies in the area of computer modelling of liquid chromatography behavior. He has a wide range of other scientific interests, including: electrochemical methods of analysis; computational interpretation of experimental data; physical electrochemistry; finite-difference simulation of problems involving mass transport and chemical reaction; and electrogenerated chemiluminescence.
