Meet the Professors
At Carolina, you'll find world-class professors excited to help you grow.
Assistant Professor in the Eshelman School of Pharmacy
The puzzle of chemistry and Carolina’s community are what drive cancer researcher and professor Lindsey James.
“There are people at Carolina who genuinely want to collaborate, and want to work on high-impact, difficult research problems together. It makes it fun to come to campus on Mondays.”
Shuford Program in Entrepreneurship
Bernard Bell helps students find their entrepreneurial passion.
“Most people think entrepreneurship is about content, and it’s not. We have to get the content right, but it’s really about feeling valued, building teams, and having spirit and true empathy. It’s about understanding yourself so you can understand everybody else.”
Teaching Professor in the Department of Asian Studies
From Elementary Chinese to Business Communications in Chinese, Yi Zhou helps Carolina students develop Mandarin fluency that benefits them time and again.
“Students have more opportunities than ever to work in culturally and linguistically diverse workplaces. The economy and society are more globally connected than ever. And it’s the educator’s role, my role, to prepare students for that future.”
Aubrey L. Brooks Professor of Law in the UNC School of Law
Professor Donald Hornstein works to create engaging, real-life opportunities for his students.
“Over 100 undergrads in my Environmental Law and Policy class worked with 15 volunteer law students to research a U.S. Supreme Court brief to reduce out-of-state air pollution. The litigation led to huge reductions in conventional pollutants from out-of-state coal-fired power plants.”
