  • Biography
    I have been a chemistry professor at Fairmont State University since 1994 and currently lead the Creative Sustainability Council on campus as part of the Abelina Suarez Professorship. I am fascinated by the interactions of light and matter, and work on solar fuels with undergraduates and K-12 teachers and students through the WV Brigade of the Solar Army. We are looking for materials that can speed up the splitting of water with sunlight to form hydrogen and oxygen gas. I’m very interested in improving student success in college science courses, specifically the heavily math-based courses. I'm a PI for First2 Network NSF INCLUDES Alliance.

  • I'm interested in these STEM education questions:
    Does a research internship before entering college affect student success in STEM during college? What are the most important risk factors for STEM undergrads, and how can faculty help students overcome them?

  • What I have to offer the First2 Network:
    Belief in win-win solutions, 27 years teaching/research experience, Commitment to student success

  • What I seek from the First2 Network:
    Partners for First 2 Network, Opportunities for undergraduates, Support for research
