My research experience was the most transformative, influential, and memorable component of my undergraduate education. The skills I began developing during that period assisted in my growth as a scientist and in no small part helped shaped my career. In this presentation, I summarize my research performed to date, that includes my investigations into stable and unstable molecules using a variety of infrared and far-infrared lasers. I also look forward to conveying the agony surrounding my many failures along with highlighting what my students and I did to turn those stumbles into successes.
