Education and Background
My name is Mario Vargas, I started working at LBCC in 2014. I obtained my BS in biochemistry at Cal State L.A and my MS and PhD in chemistry at UC Riverside. I am passionate about teaching and helping students from all walks of life. Teaching is something I have always loved and is something that I look forward to continue to do on this great and diverse campus. Courses that I have taught are CHEM 2, CHEM 3, CHEM 12A and I will soon teach CHEM 1A. Besides teaching, I also enjoy running to stay fit. My heroes, besides my father, are Nikola Tesla and Juan Manuel Marquez.
