My interests lie in the area of chemical education. At the college level, I am currently developing a new experimental sequence for second semester organic labs. I am also interested in increasing the conceptual understanding and performance in general and organic chemistry, as well as introducing the excitement and relevancy of chemistry to non-science majors. Currently technological avenues and peer-instruction are being explored to improve learning and interest.
