AREAS OF INTEREST
I am primarily interested in teaching. More importantly, I am interested in improving the performance of students in the chemical sciences courses and providing a chemistry curriculum that will better prepare students for the work force and graduate school. I have been involved in National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) initiatives to enhance the teaching of general, organic and biochemistry at Tuskegee University . I am also interested in working with high schools in the state of Alabama to improve the teaching of chemistry and to enhance the qualification of high school chemistry teachers. I am presently working with other chemistry faculty to secure NSF funding to impact high school science teaching.
