Sharing the excitement of chemistry with students in the lab and classroom is my passion. After implementing the first research project into the organic chemistry lab, CURE, my goal is to continue the introduction of research into the undergraduate lab curriculum. Additionally, I have an interest in medicinal plants and developed the APPLES course, 'Chemistry of Purslane'.
