Faculty / Staff Interests

Teaching Interests

 Inspire students to excel in chemistry with:

  • clear and interesting lectures
  • fun chemistry demonstrations
  • personalized attention outside of the classroom
  • a learning environment that emphasizes patience and caring for their personal well-being

Research and Professional Interests

Foster undergraduate research opportunities that enrich students’ practical understanding of chemistry in order to prepare them for advanced studies in the sciences.       

 

Teach students polymer, sol-gel, and vapor-phase fabrication techniques to prepare nanoarchitectured materials:

  • colloidal crystals
  • inverse opals
  • aerogels
  • nanopipes
  • Electrochemically test nanomaterials as battery, capacitor, and fuel cell electrodes that rapidly discharge and re-charge
  •  
  • Characterize the physical properties of these nanomaterials with:
    • electron and atomic force microscopies
    • nitrogen porosimetry
    • X-ray diffraction
    • thermal analyses
    • X-ray, UV-Vis, and FTIR spectroscopies
