Current Research

My current reseach focus on the development and use of condensed phase, molecular simulation methods to investigate chemical problems. I am currently studying lipid bilayers, membrane proteins (specifically ion channels), and the spectroscopy of molecular liquids.  For a more detailed research description please see the research tab.


Current Teaching

Below I list the courses I am currently teaching, for a more complete description of my teaching and courses I have taught, see the teaching tab.

  • Chemistry Seminar - these are taught yearly and need to be taken by all graduate students
    • Graduate Research Seminar Series (Chem 802)
    • Critical evaluation of Literature (Chem 805)
    • Graduate Literature in Chemistry (Chem 880)
