Professional Experience

I joined The College of Saint Rose faculty in Fall 2011. As part of the Saint Rose community, I value the opportunity to educate science enthusiasts and help them to grow academically and professionally. Outside of the classroom, I serve as the faculty advisor to the Natural Science Association, our campus’ science club.

Additionally, I hold membership in the American Chemical Society, the American Physical Society, and Sigma Xi: The Scientific Research Honor Society. I currently serve as the Treasurer of the Albany Chapter of Sigma Xi.

Research/Creative Works

My research interests include computational and theoretical chemistry. I use molecular dynamics simulations to study properties of various aqueous solutions and interfaces at the atomic/molecular level. As a researcher in this field, I have published numerous peer-reviewed journal articles and have presented at national and regional conferences of the American Chemical Society.

I have incorporated several highly motivated undergraduate students into my research projects. These students have presented their findings at the Undergraduate Research Symposium at The College of Saint Rose, and also at meetings of the Eastern New York Section of the American Chemical Society and the Albany Chapter of Sigma Xi.
