My Primary contribution to the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department focuses on chemical education. As a textbook author, workshop presenter and lecturer in large classes, I am interested in the uses and impact of multimedia resources on student learning.

One of my pedagogical research interests is the importance of peer assisted learning in large lecture courses. My efforts to develop chemical demonstrations and examine their effectiveness in the classroom are (and will always be) a \"work in progress\"
