Thank you for taking the time to peruse my website. I have a strong passion for teaching and hopefully one day you will be in my class. In addition to teaching, I mentor students conducting research in my lab. I am fascinated by the new discoveries made every day in the field of catalysis. Reducing our carbon footprint is also of significant importance to me. For this reason, the overarching theme of my research is to develop labs that undergraduates can perform that demonstrate catalysis while simultaneously ensuring that they do not possess a detrimental effect to our environment. The following descriptions pertain to research projects in my group which we have already initiated or which we are about to begin to investigate. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the research conducted in my group.
