I joined the Department of Chemistry at Sam Houston State University (SHSU) in the Fall of 2016. My teaching responsibilities focus on General Chemistry courses.
Besides teaching, my academic research focuses on learning strategies that foster skill development and the study of effective teaching practices in chemistry at the college level.
I am passionate about developing learning strategies to enhance the classroom and laboratory learning environments for the students at SHSU.
