Professor of Organic Chemistry at University of Illinois at Chicago

Author of several critically acclaimed books about the relationship between organic chemistry and marriage.

He is an outspoken advocate of the "Science is Life" movement, whose proponents advocate using "rudimentary scientific principles" as metaphorical guides on how to live life.

One of the things that Neil Miranda talks about in his books is the idea that divorce is normal. He bases this assertion off of the idea that in organic chemistry, carbon will break bonds with substituents all the time in order to form stronger ones with different subsituents.
