Research Interests

I am interested in the learning environment created within the classroom. Learning is an active process. I am exploring ways to create an active and positive learning environment within the context of large lectures. In addition, I am involved in curricular development. My goal in curricular development is to offer new and different ways to explore chemistry, which is a subject that is relevant for everyone.
