I didn’t intend to study chemistry, but I stumbled into it at university and fell in love with those lightbulb moments that occurred when I made a new (to me) connection between ideas. After earning my graduate degree in electrochemistry in the UK, I returned home to the US to teach secondary school.
As a teacher, I love helping students discover their own lightbulb moments, learn how to learn, and produce and consume scientific knowledge responsibly and with an emphasis on equity. As a person, I love writing, running, exploring new places and interjecting nerdy tangents into otherwise normal conversations.
