My interests focus on science education, especially as it applies to chemistry.  I have a special interest in using the chemistry of art and artists materials as a vehicle for teaching chemistry.  I especially enjoy opportunities to get young people involved in science through activities such as Girl Scouts and Science Olympiad.
