Research Projects/Interests



I currently do not have an active research program, however I am active in bringing technology into the classroom. In my general chemistry course I use PowerPoint(R)  to present my lectures to create a "dynamic chalkboard" which integrates images, animation and problem solving to engage the audience. I also use Mastering Chemistry web based learning system that supports the Tro general chemistry text we use at CSUS.
