I am dedicated to helping students develop a fundamental understanding of chemical concepts that can be translated and applied to the world around them.

It is critical that students achieve this understanding through an actively hands-on approach that examines relevant examples and real data. Finally, I believe that as educators, we must strive to help students not only to master the content in our courses; but also to become better learners, so that they are prepared to adapt in an ever changing world.
