I am delighted to be part of the Department of Chemistry, Medical Technology, and Physics at Monmouth. I enjoy working with our enthusiastic and well-rounded chemistry, medical laboratory science, and clinical laboratory sciences students.
Our chemistry students have a keen interest in learning their field of study and in participating in faculty-guided research projects.
Our students’ success beyond Monmouth reflects on the quality of their Monmouth experience. Many of our graduates continue their studies in high quality professional schools or PhD science programs, while other graduates begin careers as clinical laboratory scientists, medical laboratory scientists, educators, or practicing chemists.
Two distinctive strengths of our department are the variety of career paths available to our majors and the close interactions between students who are focusing on different career paths. As a result of those strengths, our students are confident of their career choice by the time they graduate because they have been routinely exposed to a variety of career options.
Like my colleagues in the department, I am delighted to share my enthusiasm for chemistry with our Monmouth students. My enthusiasm was fueled by what I learned from several great teachers who were also fine chemists. My enthusiasm for chemistry continues because of the benefits that chemistry can bring to society, especially in the area of affordable and environmentally friendly alternative energies.
My largest personal contribution to the chemistry enterprise, however, comes from the training and education that I can provide to the next generation of chemists and other professionals. I know that Monmouth University provides me with what I need to make my contribution to the enterprise of chemistry.
