Assistant Professor of Instruction, Co-Director of General Chemistry Laboratory

B.S. and B.S.Ed: Ashland University

As a member of the teaching-line faculty, I focus on the development of new resources and strategies to enhance the teaching of general and analytical chemistry. I enjoy writing compelling lab experiments that challenge our undergraduates to ask questions and engage in the process of science. By implementing scaffolded assessments and utilizing metacognition strategies, I aim to improve student perception of their belonging and value in the scientific community. I also am passionate about training the next generation of chemists, our graduate teaching assistants, to be excellent instructors and strive to provide them with a strong foundation in research-based pedagogy.
