About Me

I am a physical/analytical chemist studying aqueous-phase chemical transformations of organic compounds in microdroplets using mass spectrometry and optical microscopy.  I sought this postdoctoral position to compliment my gradute work, where I studied physical transformations of inorganic compounds using optical microscopy, and thus provide me the experience necessary to realize my long-term independent research plans. While here at LBL as a postdoc, I designed and built a colliding-droplet microreactor that is capable of studying kinetics of condensed-phase reactions on sub-millisecond timescales. I am also engaged in multiple collaborative projects, ranging from designing and constructing novel electrodynamic balances to fundamental biophysics (kinetics of protein folding/unfolding). In August of 2018, I will begin my independent career as an assistant professor of chemistry at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.
