Biography

"Above all, my primary desire is to train young minds, to fascinate them with chemistry as I have so often been. As a teacher, it is my duty to help students through a critical part of their life. I do this by being a good academic role model, by letting students know that I care about their academic and personal success, and by working hard to help them reach their goals."
