Research Interests

My interests include the use of molecular modeling to study the structure and properties of molecules, and the use of high-quality graphical images generated by software to convey chemical information. I am involved in the development of courses making use of molecular modeling to teach chemical concepts and also the integration of new teaching techniques into the classroom. I am also interested in integrating molecular modeling into courses at all levels.

Current projects include: "Curriculum Revision with Education Technology: Improving Student Outcomes in large Classrooms" with Nancy Perrin and John Rueter, and "Chemistry ConcepTests LInked to Course Learning Objectives" with Carl Wamser.
