Professor of Chemistry

I have a B.A. in chemistry and biology from Dartmouth (summa cum laude), a Ph.D. in chemistry from UCLA, and am currently an Adjunct Prof. of Chemistry at West Los Angeles College. I also have four years of experience teaching chemistry and other sciences at the high school and junior high school levels, and am currently tutoring students in both chemistry and biophysics. I have a passion for teaching, and am told by my non-scientist friends and family that I have a talent for making comple... [more]


Biology

I have a B.A. in chemistry and biology from Dartmouth (summa cum laude), and a Ph.D. in chemistry from UCLA. My Ph.D. research was in biophysics, and I have published biophysics papers in prestigious scientific journals, including the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. I have taught high school biology in the Massachusetts public school system, and tutored students in biology, biochemistry, and biophysics. I am currently an Adjunct Prof. of Chemistry at West Los Angeles College.


Chemistry

I have a B.A. in chemistry and biology from Dartmouth (summa cum laude), and a Ph.D. in chemistry from UCLA. My Ph.D. focus was physical chemistry and biophysics, and I have published papers in prestigious scientific journals, including the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. I have taught chemistry at all levels, from high school (4 years of experience in the Massachusetts public school system) to graduate school (I was the teaching assistant for the UCLA Chemistry Dept.'s graduate thermodynamics/statistical mechanics course). I am an Adjunct Prof. of Chemistry at West Los Angeles College, and am also currently tutoring students in both chemistry and biophysics.

Physics

I have a B.A. in chemistry and biology from Dartmouth (summa cum laude), and a Ph.D. in chemistry from UCLA. My Ph.D. focus was physical chemistry and theoretical biophysics, and I have published papers in prestigious scientific journals, including the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. I have taught science at all levels, from high school (4 years of experience in the Massachusetts public school system) to college (I am currently an Adjunct Prof. of Chemistry at West Los Angeles College) to graduate school (I was the teaching assistant for the UCLA Chemistry Dept.'s graduate thermodynamics/statistical physics course), and have tutored an undergraduate enrolled in an upper division physics course.


Writing

I love to write! Students sometimes struggle because they haven't learned to step back and think about the overall ("big-picture") message they want to send. Once they become more practiced at this, the writing begins to flow more easily.


Physical Science

I have a B.A. in chemistry and biology from Dartmouth (summa cum laude), and a Ph.D. in chemistry from UCLA. My Ph.D. focus was physical chemistry and biophysics, and I have published papers in prestigious scientific journals, including the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. I have four years of teaching experience in the Massachusetts public school system, where I taught physical science at both the junior high school and high school levels. I also have 11 years of experience as a senior science policy expert at USDA, where I specialized in science communication (explaining science to non-scientists). My specialty is figuring out ways to simplify complex ideas. I am currently an Adjunct Prof. of Chemistry at West Los Angeles College.


Elementary Science

I have a B.A. in chemistry and biology from Dartmouth (summa cum laude), and a Ph.D. in chemistry from UCLA. I have four years of teaching experience in the Massachusetts public school system, where I taught elementary science at both the junior high school and high school levels. I also have 11 years of experience as a senior science policy expert at USDA, where I specialized in science communication (explaining science to non-scientists). My specialty is figuring out ways to simplify complex ideas. I am currently an Adjunct Prof. of Chemistry at West Los Angeles College.


Macintosh

I've been using a Mac continuously since 2003, and know the OS very well. In particular, I've spent a lot of time setting up my Mac for optimum productivity when working with multiple programs. I'm also comfortable working within the Terminal, having used the Mac as a development platform for my research in computational biophysics.


Mathematica

I started using Mathematica with version 5, in 2003, which was my first year taking graduate classes in the UCLA Dept. of Chemistry. When I subsequently was a teaching assistant for the department's graduate statistical mechanics class, I taught those students to use Mathematica. I've also used Mathematica extensively in my research.
