Research Interests:
Development of Surface Modified Electrodes,
Chemical Education Research/Chemistry Based Modules

Current Projects:
 Development of electrochemical sensors to detect common neurotransmitters in the presence of common interferents/ sensor development for detection of heavy metals in soil and water/ synthesis characterization of sol-gel nanoparticles (Zirconia, Titanium).  REEL (Research Experiences to Enhance Learning) for undergraduate students in chemistry.  Enhance students interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Medicine) fields of research.  Project PIES (Partners in Integrated Earth Systems Science) and Project STONE (Science Teaching for Ohio's New Economy) are professional development workshops for graduate students (in-service teachers) to develop upon inquiry-based science experiences that may be utilized in their own school districts.  PIES is a unique program that takes teachers to Duke University Marine Lab on a field trip to the Atlantic Ocean to learn water chemistry and geology as an interdisciplinary science experience.  These field experiences with PIES and STONE help graduate students become better with developing inquiry-based lessons for their own students to meet state and national standards.
