Welcome to Chemistry at Napa Valley College!
A little about me:
I'm a Northern California native but spent about 4 years in New Mexico going to college and learning their ways. I completed my Ph.D. in Biophysics at UC Davis while inspiring 1st and 2nd year students to embrace Chemistry with lectures and high-fives.
For my research, I spent the better part of a decade pursuing computational and physical chemistry techniques to study biological processes; specifically, those related to Hepatitis C infection. Since moving on from graduate school, I now have time to pursue interests in Astronomy and Chemistry History (exciting!).
Outside of my scholastic endeavors, I am passionate about (but not limited to):
- Soccer and Liverpool FC (as well as all sports)
- True Crime and History Podcasts
- Recruiting an unstoppable team for Pub Quizzes
- Making 'Hella' an official SI prefix
- Rugby and Rugby Sevens
- My 5th edition half-Orc Barbarian with a big axe and a heart of gold
