Personal profile

Personal profile

I am a chemist, my research background is studying mechanisms in homogenous catalysis. My previous work has focused on product formation in methanol carbonylation (Monsanto process) and decarbonylative dehydration of naturally occurring organic acids into linear alpha olefins. These projects used synthetic, analytical and computational means to probe these mechanisms. I have also engaged in educational research investigating the use of active recall on student knowledge retention & methods of feedback.
