Caroline Chick Jarrold received her B.S. in Chemistry at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1989, and her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1994. After being a University of California President's Postdoctoral Fellow at UCLA, she joined the Chemistry faculty at the University of Illinois, Chicago in 1997, and was there until her move to the Indiana University Chemistry Department in 2002.

Professor Jarrold's research involves applying a combination of gas-phase reactivity, mass spectrometry, anion photodetachment spectroscopies, and computational chemistry toward issues of importance in energy and environment.
