One of OUR favorite Quotes about science:


“Many people say that it is the intellect which makes a scientist. They are wrong: it is character”

We are a team of research chemists dedicated to both chemical education pedagogy and chemistry research. In the lab, we combine experiment and computation to work on fundamental research projects that have a variety of applications in materials chemistry, drug design and environmental remediation. In the classroom we believe in the future of video instruction and the power of active learning strategies to create transformative learning experiences.

As a group we believe in the immersion of undergraduate students in authentic research projects and in that capacity we run an active research group comprised of graduate, undergraduate and high school students. Please browse the research projects tab for more information on our research projects.

If you like what you see and are interested in working in the lab please email us!
