My current research interests involve the use of readily available technology, such as smartphones, microcontrollers, and 3-D printers, to produce inexpensive chemical instrumentation. Previous research interests encompassed biological electron transfer reactions under extreme environmental conditions.
My teaching style is based on the cognitive learning paradigm, which stresses the thought processes of the learner. These thought processes are influenced by prior knowledge, attitude, motivation, and learning style. Small group problem solving is incorporated into all classes.
