Hello and welcome to my webpage! I am an assistant professor of chemistry at the California State University, Bakersfield. I am teaching CHEM 331 (Concepts of Organic Chemistry I) and CHEM 290 (Careers in Chemistry & Biochemistry) this fall. I conduct research with undergraduate students in the area of synthetic organic chemistry. In my "spare" time, I dabble in chemical education.
