Learning By Doing
I am committed to providing students the opportunity to become involved in scientific research. Often students forget concepts they see or hear, but they never forget ideas and concepts they learned from "hands-on" research. Many of my students have also been given the chance to present their work at national meetings of the American Chemical Society (New Orleans, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Chicago, San Francisco)
Here's a couple of my favorite quotes related to learning
- I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.
- The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as
to discover new ways of thinking about them.
Sir William Bragg
- I am currently an associate professor in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry. I've been at La Salle since 2002, where I teach courses in General, Analytical, Instrumental Analysis, Physical, and Inorganic Chemistry. I graduated in 1996 from La Salle with a B.A. in Chemistry and Biochemistry. I then did my graduate work with Prof. Anthony Addison at Drexel University. I received my Ph.D. degree in Inorganic Chemistry in 2001. After my graduate work, I spent a year at Rowan University in Glassboro, N.J.
