I teach foundation chemistry to students who hope to enter the pre-med program. My research interests are in chemical education and I am currently involved with a NOS research project in collaboration with several institutions, (universities US and Qatar) and schools in Qatar. I am involved with outreach work between Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar and high schools in Qatar. I would also like to increase environmental awareness about water shortage in the Gulf as we rely on desalinated water.
