2009 - Ph.D. University of Colorado. Physical Chemistry
2004 - B.S. Kings College, Wilkes-Barre, PA.
I teach a variety of courses within the Chemistry Department at Saint Anselm. In recent years I have taught General Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Instrumental Chemistry, as well as their corresponding labs. These courses are required for many of our science majors, and an integral building block to the Chemistry major.
Also, I regularly teach a non-majors course designed for Education Studies majors called Integrated Science. This course recently spawned a blog of interesting news-related science stories as a resource for those students.
I have several research interests including understanding the reactivity of ions in the gas phase, identification and quantification of organic compounds in archeological samples, and the science behind an arson investigation. To learn more about these projects, visit my research page.
Student and Community Involvement
I am the advisor of the Saint Anselm Chemistry Club. This club has been recently recognized by the American Chemical Society as a Student Chapter. Our students have opportunities to travel to present research at meeting, volunteer at local high schools, assist in Science Olympiad, and tutor - to name a few things. I am also the New Hampshire Science Olympiad State Director. For more information about Science Olympiad, please visit our website or contact us!
