Biographical Information

I have taught inorganic, biological and general chemistry in the Haverford College Department of Chemistry since 1988. I am also a member of the Biochemistry and Biophysics Concentration steering committee and of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Program.

I received a B.A. in Chemistry from Oberlin College in 1980, and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley in 1985. My doctoral studies were in under the guidance of Prof. Kenneth Raymond, and I spent three years as a post-doctoral research associate of Prof. Lawrence Que, Jr. of the University of Minnesota.
