Peter Mikulecky


Peter’s roots with Fusion date back to 2007. He has served in various roles, but has always managed to create space for his original and abiding love–teaching and mentoring students, helping each to discover themselves as they also engage with science and mathematics. Peter believes in the kids he works with, and in the power of Fusion’s one-to-one approach to reveal possibility. Peter holds a Ph.D. in biological chemistry from Indiana University and a B.S. in biochemistry/molecular biology from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. He was lead author for three books: Chemistry Workbook for Dummies, AP Chemistry for Dummies and AP Biology for Dummies, and has edited several other titles in that series. Outside of Fusion, Peter writes and edits copy for marketing and scientific clients. In addition he works with leather, with a particular passion for making bespoke shoes using traditional hand methods. He shares life with his stunning hobbit wife, Michelle.
