Eva Csuhai

Professor of Chemistry; Pre-Health Chief Advisor

Eva Csuhai is a recipient of Transylvania’s Bingham Award for Excellence in Teaching.

She serves as the faculty adviser for Transylvania’s chapter of the American Chemical Society and is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Csuhai began teaching at Transylvania in 1998. She earned her Ph.D. from Texas A&M University and has experimental expertise in synthetic, inorganic, and biochemistry of polyamines and structure and activities of peptidase enzymes.

I like to teach by modeling behavior and serving as an example: how to read, ask questions, break down, analyze and solve problems, ask new questions.
