I am currently an adjunct professor of chemistry at a small liberal arts college in the Chicago area. Previously, I worked in the chemical industry for several years as a researcher, but I've found that the most satisfying moments have come when I am able to share my expertise with someone else. Similarly, I very much enjoyed the four semesters in the graduate school when I was a teaching assistant. It gave me the opportunity to work with students and help them develop an understanding for the subject. These are the primary reasons that I have decided to go into teaching.

I have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Georgia Tech and dual BS degrees in chemical engineering and biochemistry from UW-Madison.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My goal is to enable students to solve problems themselves, so they gain an understanding of the material. The most effective way to master a subject is through practice and struggle. My job is to guide them through that struggle and encourage them.
