HHMI Professor of Chemistry and Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign along with a PhD in Materials Science. Grid Storage Leader and Lead PI for the Non-Aqueous Redox Flow thrust within the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) at Argonne National Laboratory. Research focuses on organic materials and self-healing polymers as part of the Autonomic Materials Systems group at the Beckman Institute. Experienced educator specializing in nontraditional instructional delivery especially for large-enrollment science courses with interests in curiosity-driven learning and personalized instruction of the molecular sciences to pre-professional undergraduates.

Course Info

With support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, I am developing a chemistry curriculum on "The Molecular Sciences Made Personal". Spring 2016 - CHEM 104 A large-enrollment general chemistry course. Includes a semester long group project in which student groups will apply what they have learned about molecular structure, properties, kinetics and thermodynamics to produce a pharmacogenomics report for Billy Ashcraft (whose 23andMe data is publicly available). The students will be able to use this report as a template to interpret their own pharmacogenomics profile.
