Hubbard, David individual record
Associate Professor

Received my bachelor's in chemistry from the University of Missouri-St. Louis in 1988. After graduation I worked as a research chemist at Monsanto Chemical Company in the areas of thin films, sensors, and optical coatings and then as an environmental chemist at the University of Missouri-Columbia. After working more than a decade in the areas of materials science, analytical chemistry, and environmental health & safety; I earned a master's in library science and pursued science & engineering librarianship. Before joining Texas A&M University, I served as the subject liaison to several science and engineering departments at both Texas Tech University and Missouri University of Science & Technology (MS&T). While at MS&T, I also served as the Government Documents Librarian supporting geographic information systems (GIS) and maps. This led to an additional master's in Geographic Information Science and research into the geospatial aspects of scholarship.
