I started at the University of Kentucky in 2002, serving as a part-time instructor, lab coordinator, and Lecturer over several years. I am currently a Senior Lecturer and the Director of General Chemistry. My main interests are in chemical education, specifically relating to issues related to student engagement in large lectures. Many of the efforts in my current classes started when I served as co-instructor for the University of Kentucky's first massive online open course (MOOC), "Advanced Chemistry" as well as "Chemistry" both of which still attract new enrollments today.
