I teach in the chemistry and forensic science programs; additionally I teach the introductory astronomy course and lab on the Fayette campus. I love being able to share my passion for science as a way of understanding the universe, whether that is the entire universe or particular aspects of it like the structure and properties of matter or what physical evidence can tell us about a crime. Our programs prepare students to face these challenges through personalized interaction and advising.
