I am chemistry instructor, teaching general chemistry and organic chemistry for science and non-science majors. My advocacy aside from teaching is to continue connecting with secondary chemistry teachers, especially from the remote areas by coordinating in the chemistry activities such as the annual chemistry olympiad. Another is to cultivate understanding and appreciation of chemistry, not only among students but also in the community, and, educating the public on consumer chemistry and household chemistry.

I am the adviser of the Chemistry Society of MSU-Iligan Institute of Technology, Iligan City, Philippines.
