Research in our group includes research of chemistry (of course), nanotechnology, and environmental science. Our group performs education research related to these subjects as well. Students interested in chemical research can study the impact of nanomaterials on the environment and study kinetics of photochemical reactions. Current education research topics include evaluating the efficacy of virtual labs for general chemistry and  developing new nanotechnology lab experiments for first-year students. Read descriptions of our ongoing Chemical and Education projects. We welcome undergraduate students studying chemistry or in any other program to join us and contribute to these exciting fields of research. 

Diverse research interests require collaborations. We work with other faculty at many schools as well as industry and government labs. Collaborators include faculty and students in engineering, science, education, and mathematics. Much of this work is funded through grants from NASA, the National Science Foundation, and other agencies. Research results are published in peer-reviewed journals listed on our group’s Publications page.
