Research Interests

My focus is primarily on teaching the introductory chemistry courses here at SU. I am interested in developing methods that can be used to create a more engaging and dynamic classroom environment. This involves not only incorporating technology into the classroom for things such as real-time tracking of student understanding, but also using technology to make the classroom content available to the student, regardless of the time of day or their location.
