About:

I am a physical chemist by training and currently direct the College of Sience Office of Undergraduate Rsearch initiatives at the University of Texas at El Paso. I worked for a few years for the American Chemical Society as Manager of Global Education and Exchanges. Prior to that I was a faculty member in the Chemistry Department at Clemson University in South Carolina. As a passionate chemistry educator, I want to help spread the message that chemistry is central to all the positive aspects of modern human life and that it is playing a crucial role in solving global issues.
