Teaching and Safety Training •Develop new innovative laboratories for general, organic, biochemistry, and analytical chemistry. •Teach advanced general chemistry, biochemistry, organic, and analytical lecture and laboratory.•Develop, facilitate, and assess TA training (teaching, policies, and safety) for all incoming graduate students and assist with the TA mentoring program. •Coordinate with the HUME writing center for designing writing modules for the writing in the major (analytical chemistry) course. Prepare peer review modules for teaching scientific writing in analytical chemistry.•Conduct and publish chemical education research focusing upon problem solving strategies, writing and peer-review, case-based learning, undergraduate laboratory experiences at the research interface, and active learning methodologies.•Prepare internal grant proposals for university funding to support education-based research projects. I have received over $300,000 to date. •Advise the Alpha Chi Sigma (AXS) chemistry social organization at Stanford University•Coordinate with instrumental facilities for GC, HPLC, MS, ICP, x-ray, and NMR analyses. Oversee the budget and usage of these instruments for my courses. •Develop and facilitate safety training for chemistry and biology undergraduate students enrolled in laboratories. This has led to a partnership with chemical engineering to help advance their safety training program.•Partially manage the laboratory budget and undergraduate budget for TA training.•Interface with EH&S for compliance issues. •Provide assistance with ChemTracker in maintaining the chemical inventory.
Cox 2 •Develop evidence-based research methods for assessing curriculum changes and student trajectories in major and service courses. •Assist with outreach events which have included demonstrations and presentations for local high school students. •Develop and continually update the textbook used in the advanced general chemistry course at Stanford. (Being added to the ChemLibre Textbook Site) •Develop case-studies for active learning modules in an upper-division biochemistry course. •Co-teach and assist with the science curriculum for the Leland Scholars Program --designed for incoming freshmen who attended under-resourced high schools and for FLI and DGen students. •Prepare videos and screencasts (using Camtasia) for implementing a flipped classroom approach for general and biochemistry.
