I have been a faculty member at Trine University since fall 2017. Prior to this position, I was a graduate student at the University of Notre Dame, where I received my degree. During my graduate work I specialized in metal-catalyzed C-C and C-N bond formations for the synthesis of highly substituted tertiary or quaternary centers.

I enjoy teaching general chemistry courses, but my expertise and passion is in organic chemistry. I have taught Organic Chemistry I and II courses and both organic chemistry labs. I enjoy tackling a hard subject for students with enthusiasm and encouragement.

Outside of the classroom, I love reading, watching TV and playing a variety of sports, including tennis, golf and pickleball.
