Research Interests:

I am a physical chemist with interests in general chemical education as well as in the history and philosophy of science.  My research right now is in the field of chemical education.  In the Fall of 1998, I started a project on using a “Workshop” format to help students master general chemistry.  The workshops are groups of 8 or 9 students who meet weekly to go over sets of assigned questions and problems.  A number of undergraduate students are involved as peer leaders of the workshops.  Results of the project will be used to improve student understanding of material, attitudes toward chemistry, and retention in future chemistry courses.
