Professional Summary

As an Adjunct Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of Cincinnati (UC), I teach Analytical Chemistry I and Analytical Chemistry II (Instrumental Analysis Lecture) and Instrumental Analysis Laboratory for third, fourth, and fifth year students, and General Chemistry Laboratory for first year students. In addition, I co-teach a graduate level specal topics course on Seprations. I have thirty-six years of experience in industrial chemistry and thirty three years of experience in Analytical Research and Method Development and Applications in polymers, synthetic lubricants, oleochemicals, ultra-trace pollutants, product de-formulation, and complex problem solving. I have special research interests in multi-dimensional separation analysis, characterization of totally new standards, computer applications in complex analysis, and high energy physics. I also have interests and experience in mentoring, performing chemical demonstrations and judging school science fairs.
