I am gay and I am an inorganic chemist and chemistry education researcher. //
I am an associate professor of chemistry at the University of New Hampshire. I grew up in southwestern Pennsylvania and earned BA degrees in chemistry and music from Washington and Jefferson College. I went on earn a PhD degree from the University of Wisconsin and perform post-doctoral research at the University of Michigan. At UNH, I lead a chemistry education research group and serve as the coordinator for undergraduate chemistry programs. I am also very active within the American Chemical Society, where I currently serve on the Society Committee on Education, and the Graduate Education Advisory Board. In my spare time, I enjoy performing in community musical theatre, cooking, sampling bourbon, and traveling the word. In my career, I’ve been privileged to have diverse and inclusive mentors, friends, and colleagues—each of whom have contributed to the person and scientist I am today. Many thanks to all of those wonderful people!
