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.

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."

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.
