Profile

I am an inorganic chemist and crystallographer. The undergraduate courses that I currently teach are General Chemistry (freshman level) and Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry (sophomore level) and Advanced Inorganic Chemistry (senior level). I also teach graduate inorganic courses such as Bioinorganic Chemistry. In my research, I prepare transition metal coordination compounds. The compounds prepared in my laboratory are analyzed by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The primary service position I have is the teacher certification officer. I am the subject mentor and advisor for the chemistry teacher candidates.

Specialization

Preparation and crystallographic study of coordination compounds with ligands that contain hydrogen bonding groups and reparation
Characterization of quasiracemates containing transition metal complexes
