Curriculum Vitae (PDF)
I teach general chemistry, Foundations of physical chemistry, Advanced Physical Chemistry selected topics in chemistry (Industrial Chemistry, Renewable Energy, materials Chemistry), Catalysis. I directed two study abroad India programs in chemistry in 2014 and 2015.  I mentor several undergraduate and graduate students for research in chemistry in the areas of heterogeneous catalysis. I also directed seven federal Teacher Quality grants for professional development of science teachers in Southwest Georgia (2006-2016).
