Biosketch:

Born in Malabon on January 28, 1965 to Primitivo de Dios and Diega Cagandahan, a native of Paete, Laguna, Angel grew up in an old house in Sampaloc, Manila, but also spent his summer vacations in Paete. He finished elementary at the Quiapo Parochial School (1977) and graduated from secondary school at the Manila Science High School (1981). After high school, Angel received scholarship offers from Engineering, Equipment, Inc., the Department of Education State Scholarship Program, the National Science and Technology Authority, and the Ateneo de Manila University. He decided to pursue a BS Chemistry degree at the Ateneo with the National Science scholarship. He finished his Bachelor studies at the Ateneo in 1985 and decided to stay in that university for two years, serving as a part time lecturer. Upon graduation, the Philippine government honored Angel with an Award for Academic Excellence in Science.

In 1987, Angel entered graduate school in the United States of America. He was awarded a University Fellowship by the University of Illinois at Chicago during his first year of graduate studies. During his graduate studies and teaching assistantship, Angel received the Bernard Babler Award for the most outstanding teaching assistant in Chemistry. He also received a Student Service Award for helping organize a graduate student organization. He successfully defended his doctoral dissertation: “The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Chemical Shift: Intra- and Intermolecular Effects” with Cynthia Jameson as adviser in 1992 and proceeded to postdoctoral work at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, joining the research group of Eric Oldfield. In Oldfield laboratory, Angel developed an explanation for the origins of chemical shift inequivalencies in peptides and proteins, paving a novel route for structure elucidation. A paper he co-authored with John Pearson and Eric Oldfield on this subject in the journal Science has been cited more than a couple of hundred times.

In 1994, Angel received a postdoctoral fellowship award from the American Heart Association (Illinois Affiliate). After completing his postdoctoral work, Angel joined the faculty of the Department of Chemistry at Georgetown University in Washington, DC in 1995. Upon starting his academic career, he received the Camille and Henry Dreyfus New Faculty Award, an honor given to the top ten starting faculty in the chemical science and chemical engineering departments in the US. Angel has been teaching General Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Quantum Chemistry, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance at Georgetown. He has mentored several undergraduate students and another Filipino, Marlon Manalo received his PhD with Angel as mentor.

In 1999, Angel received a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation. The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of the early career-development activities of those teacher-scholars who are most likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st century. He also received funding from the American Chemical Society administered Petroleum Research Fund. His current research interests include development of antimalarial drugs. Working with two other chemists, Christian Wolf and Paul Roepe, this research program has recently been awarded a 2 million dollar grant by the National Institutes of Health.

Angel is also one of the recipients of the Georgetown College Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2004. Angel has been recently admitted to the Philippine American Academy of Science and Engineering. He also serves as a specialist reporter for Britain’s Royal Society of Chemistry and as a Committee member for the Graduate Record Examination of the Educational Testing Service in Princeton, New Jersey. He has served in several review panels of the National Science Foundation and as peer reviewer in various scientific journals. He has co-edited a book, “The NMR Chemical Shift: Insights into Structure and Environment”, published by Oxford University Press and co-chaired a symposium by the American Chemical Society on NMR chemical shifts. Angel is currently an associate professor with tenure and the director of undergraduate studies at Georgetown.
