Dr. Venera Jouraeva started teaching at Cazenovia College in the fall of 2012. Prior to coming to Cazenovia, she taught a variety of chemistry courses at SUNY Oswego, Kutztown University, and Capital University, and worked as the technical director of an environmental testing lab. Dr. Jouraeva’s research focuses on developing new soil and water remediation methods. She is also interested in leading undergraduate and high school student research and in integrating humor and other innovative educational approaches and technologies into her classes.
