• About me


    Assistant Teaching Professor, Chemistry and Biochemistry

    Director, Science and Engineering Learning Center

  • I am a biophyisical/inorganic chemist interested in using EPR spectroscopy to monitor fast biochemical reactions including redox and free radical chemistry.  Currently, we are working to apply EPR imaging to monitor these reactions spatially and in real time.  

    Bringing EPR to a broad audience is also an interest of mine.  I tweet about applications of EPR on Twitter @heydebigale.

    I also plan to develop labs that can be incorporated into undergraduate physical chemistry labs to teach the applications of EPR.  

    Finally, I am interested in the science of chemistry education!  Because chemistry is central to all aspects of science and medicine, I am always looking for better ways to help my students learn and apply chemistry.  I am interested in alternative teaching styles such as using a "flipped" model and "active learning" classrooms.  I am also interested in teaching my students better ways to communicate science with a broad audience.
