Numerade - a free online video platform with hundreds of thousands of videos to help students learn difficult STEM material. It would especially be helpful for any underclassmen who may need to be caught up or refreshed on material not covered in their current classes. Here are a few links you’re welcome to pass along that have thousands of topical videos in STEM subject matters that should help students: Physics LecturesPrecalculus LecturesCalculus LecturesChemistry Lectures


We are interested in the interdisciplinary areas between organic chemistry, nanotechnology, and photodynamics.
Currently our research is focused on the three following projects:

1. Synthesis, controlled functionalization, and application of nanoparticles for biochemical, medical, catalysis, and industrial polymer applications 

2. Photo sensitized cytotoxicity of quinones as potential PDT agents 

3. Catalysis by carbons and deposited materials (Pd, vanadia, titania. etc.)
