Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Director of Chemical Laboratories
B.S. Biochemistry, University of Oregon, 1983.
Ph.D. Physical Chemistry, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 1989.
My work involves the development of curricula for the chemistry laboratory and computational chemical modeling. In the former case, construction of laboratory curricula that are modern, novel and cross-divisional is the goal. In the second, construction of computational models involving quantum chemical and biophysical calculations using commercial software such as Gaussian or Autodock, as well as software developed in-house, is the goal.
