Her research is in the interdisciplinary field of nanochemistry, where her current interests involve the use of plant materials as reducing agents for nanoparticles. She regularly teaches General Chemistry, Thermodynamics and Kinetics, Inorganic Chemistry, and courses related to nanotechnology.
CHEM 141 Foundations of Chem w/Lab
A one-semester introductory course for students who are especially well-prepared for general chemistry, replacing CHEM 131, 132 as a prerequisite for more advanced courses in the major. Topics include atomic structure, chemical bonding, thermodynamics, kinetics, equilibrium, electrochemistry, acid/base chemistry, solubility, and transition metal chemistry. The laboratory experiments will relate directly to topics covered in lecture, and will include statistical analysis of data, molecular modeling, instrumental methods of analysis, and quantitative analytical and inorganic chemistry. Admittance into this course is based on a placement exam. Three hours of classroom and three hours of laboratory per week. This course fulfills either the Lab Sciences (Division III) distribution requirement or QR graduation requirement.
