About Me

The courses I teach are Organic Chemistry 1 and 2 (lecture and lab) for science majors; general, organic, and biochemistry for nursing majors; and food science for students majoring in tourism and hospitality management. In all the courses I create an active learning environment by taking practical examples and stress the relevance of chemistry in their chosen field.

Research Interests

My research interests are to develop new greener synthetic routes to pharmaceutically relevant organic molecules and study their thermodynamic properties. Current efforts are focused on resveratrol and boronic acid derivatives.
