Student-Faculty Collaborative Research

In student-faculty collaborative research, students will learn new lab techniques, how to design and develop a scientific research project, gain independence in the lab and practice presentation skills.

Students must have taken general chemistry and commit four hours per week per credit. Students may start at any semester!

Fun Fact

I love teaching chemistry and working with lots of fun colors in the lab. I also enjoy yoga and trying to do handstands as well as trying new restaurants in the city.
