BIOGRAPHY

I joined the Lyman Briggs College as an Academic Specialist in the 2018-2019 school year, and am part of the chemistry faculty team. Though general chemistry is often thought of as an introductory course, I believe that label does not fully encompass the foundational education students receive. This series of courses really represents a space in which students are able to develop their skills for scientific argumentation (claim-evidence-reasoning), understanding of fundamental chemistry concepts, and nourish student's sense of curiosity via experimental design. Additionally, both the laboratory and lecture settings allow students to build community as they are encouraged to work collaboratively together on various course projects. I believe, as a team, we strive toward providing students with a fruitful, supportive, unique, and engaging education environment.
