About:

I am a Professor of Chemistry at Brooklyn College - The City University of New York and study the role of metals in biological systems. My research is focused on the role of heme proteins and zinc finger proteins in human health (cardiovascular disease and cancer). I am active in the local section of the American Chemical Society and am interested in public outreach.
