“As an organic/medicinal chemist, I view research and lab classes as teaching tools which helps bring organic chemistry alive. I help my students to apply literature concepts in their laboratory courses and research. I enjoy working with Roosevelt students because they are passionate about science. My main goal is to nurture this passion from the moment they step into my class or lab. I want my students to experience the fascinating world of organic/medicinal chemistry. Roosevelt University’s modern and well-equipped laboratories and infrastructure also provide an excellent environment for this to happen..”
