Background: My graduate research work focused on the synthesis and characterization
of magnetic and semiconducting nanomaterials, specifically those with f-block elements.
Why teaching? I believe learning chemistry should be an exciting and rewarding experience. My goal when teaching is to establish strong student-professor partnerships and help my students reach their goals. I know that not every student will want to become a chemist, but I hope that the usual thought of, “Ugh, I hate chemistry,” will become, “You know, chemistry is pretty cool"" after taking my class.
Why MC?: The diverse population of students at MC brought me here. The many different academic backgrounds, life experiences, and academic goals is exciting to see and having the opportunity to teach a subject that connects us all, no matter our differences, makes being here even better.
