Bio

Developing laboratory and process safety content for chemical engineering courses – In light of recent safety incidents at engineering and laboratory facilities across the country, ABET has specified new criteria introducing safety as a key component of CBE. I am interested in developing course content which introduces concepts regarding safety throughout the chemical engineering curriculum.

Application of plagiarism screening software in the chemical engineering curriculum – I am interested in (1) investigating the effectiveness of plagiarism screening software in identifying plagiarism and (2) identifying the attitudes of undergraduate CBE students toward their instructors using plagiarism screening software.
