An Inorganic Chemist by training, I have taught courses ranging from Introductory Chemistry lectures and labs, through core courses in Inorganic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry, to advanced topics courses on Photochemistry and Photophysics, Hydrogen Energy and our department Senior Seminar. My research lab explores the excited-states of platinum(II) complexes, including luminescence, electron transfer, energy transfer, and photoreactivity. My broader interests include the analysis of solar energy technologies to address problems with fossil fuel dependence. Outside of chemistry, I enjoy a reguar yoga practice, percussion, book collecting, and the Columbian Exposition of 1893.
