I am trans and I am a mechanistic organometallic chemist.//


I am a queer, trans chemistry professor at the Keck Science Department of Claremont McKenna, Pitzer, and Scripps Colleges in southern California. My primary research interests are in the field of mechanistic organometallic chemistry, specifically studying C-H and C-C oxidative addition/reductive elimination at platinum centers. I teach classes ranging from first year seminar courses to inorganic chemistry. I have been a membership of the Leadership Council of IONiC, the Interactive Online Network of Inorganic Chemists since its founding. I’m a proud member of the greater Los Angeles transgender community and of the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles.
