The devotional will be broadcast live on the BYU Broadcasting channels. For rebroadcast information, visit byubroadcasting.org.
Dearden’s research interests include gas phase ion chemistry and the use of Fourier transform mass spectrometry to characterize prototypical molecular machines. He seeks to understand complex chemical processes by studying them in the gas phase.
After postdoctoral study at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, he joined the faculty of the University of Texas at Arlington, where he won a National Science Foundation Young Investigator award. He came to BYU in 1994.
He received a bachelor’s degree from BYU and a doctorate from the California Institute of Technology.
