Prof. Zysmilich joined the Faculty in September 2000 and in the fall semester of 2001 he overtook the chemistry education program for non-science majors. Since then, he dramatically modified the curricula for the Contemporary Science for Non-Science Majors courses, Chem 003 and 004. The successful modernization of these two courses has made Prof. Zysmilich the recipient of the student-nominated 2002 Robert W. Kenny Prize, as well as the 2003 Bender Teaching Award. Prof. Zysmilich developed and taught the first distance online chemistry course offered by the Chemistry Department at GW. His teaching responsibilities also include the Honor General Chemistry courses, Honr 033 and 034, and the General Chemistry courses Chem 011 and 012 during the summer sessions. He also acts as an undergraduate advisor for Chemistry majors.

Dr. Zysmilich received his Master of Science Degree (Licenciatura en Ciencias Químicas) from Universidad de Buenos Aires in 1990 and his Ph.D. in biophysical chemistry from Columbia University in 1997. Form 1997 to 2000, he served as a lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
