As an education-focussed lecturer in chemistry at Monash University, I have invested a considerable amount of my energy to towards developing new educational tools for teaching chemistry. Given that we are in the dawn of a new era of technology, it is appropriate that those who have the know-how contribute to the engagement of that technology for making chemistry accessible and fun for both our undergraduate chemists and the rest of the community.

I am always looking for like-minded chemists to collaborate on new educational projects, so please feel free to touch base so that we can share chemistry with the Australia, and the world.
