Instructional Associate Professor
I am an undergraduate advisor in the Chemistry Department of Texas A&M University. I assist chemistry majors with course selection, degree planning, and career planning. I provide information about campus resources like Student Counseling Services, the Academic Success Center, Office of Professional School Advising, and Study Abroad. I oversee the departmental Undergraduate Curriculum Committee and the Undergraduate Awards Committee. I also meet with prospective students to discuss our program and career options for chemistry majors. I meet students and their families during their New Student Conferences, orienting them to our program and assisting them with course registration.
I have taught a variety of courses while at Texas A&M University, particularly Horizons in Chemistry, CHEM100; Molecular Science for Citizens, CHEM106; Physical Chemistry lecture and laboratories, CHEM325, CHEM326, CHEM328; and our communication intensive senior seminar, CHEM481.
I am also the director of our REU program, an NSF-funded summer program that hosts visiting students for a 10-week summer research experience. I oversee the student selection, mentor orientation, weekly programming for the students, and organize the culminating symposium.
