I primarily teach courses in the General, Organic and Biochemistry sequence for non-science majors and the General Chemistry sequence. Related to this, I co-author lab manuals and co-coordinate labs for the GOB and General Chemistry labs. I also teach our first-year seminar and peer-mentor courses and I am the advisor for the Chemistry Club.

Area(s) of Research
My scholarly interests lie in chemistry education and exploring topics like how students connect knowledge between macroscopic, microscopic and symbolic representations. I am also heavily involved in our M.S. in Chemistry Education for science teachers program as I mentor and advise students through the development and presentation of an action research project.
