Lecturer

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

UT Austin

Sometimes chemistry can be confusing, particularly when it involves items and events we cannot see directly. I choose to make it relatable via analogies, stories, role play, props and simulations. When students can relate to a topic, they build a passion for learning and apply its principles to tackle life's complex problems.
