I really enjoy teaching, and I think everyone should teach. Prior to my career in higher education, I taught high school science in Oakland, CA and Watts, CA. Those were some of the most challenging, but most rewarding, years in my life.
My research is focused on understanding how metal complexes can interact with reactive sulfur species. Reactive sulfur species are important, but complicated, compounds that are crucial in biology. Using metal complexes to stabilize them may provide insights towards how they function in biology.
What I Love About Emmanuel
I love the community of Emmanuel College. All of my students have been excited about learning, a passion that can often be quenched while navigating the education system. All of my colleagues have been supportive, helpful, and passionate about innovation and teaching. Emmanuel has a special environment of collaboration and hard work, and I am very excited to contribute to it!
