About Me

I am passionate about education in an undergraduate setting. My laboratory research is directed toward the synthesis and characterization of new ligands and related transition metal complexes for homogeneous catalysis. In the classroom, I am interested in chemical education, especially the creation of new laboratory experiments tailored to an undergraduate setting. In my current role as Associate Dean of the Getty College of Arts & Sciences, I work on curriculum, assessment, course scheduling, and catalog updates; respond to faculty and faculty/student concerns; advise general studies and general science students; handle incomplete and change of grade requests; organize and assist with faculty and school leadership development activities, develop strategic plans and initiatives in consultation with the Dean, and assume responsibilities of the Dean as needed; and consult/collaborate with faculty, associate deans of the other colleges, and Academic Affairs as needed.
