I love leaning and teaching. Chemistry is something I understand and can help to explain so that you will understand it too. I am currently working at a start-up in Santa Barbara doing R&D on semi-transparent solar cells. Previously, I worked both at Merrimack College (2 years) and Saint Anselm College (1 year) in the Chemistry Departments as an adjunct lecturer.

I was a chemistry student in university for 14 years and then worked in industry for 10+ years on organic light emitting displays, conductive inks, device fabrication, organic photovoltaics, encapsulation, device characterization, reliability, lithium ion battery research & development, cell capacity, longevity and optimization.

I have a thorough understanding of the principles of chemistry with respect to education and application.
