Also familiar with synthetic process development and improvement for making pharmaceuticals and biological active molecules in a multi-step process.
I received my PhD in Chemistry back in 1993. For the last few years, I taught chemistry and other science subjects at HS level in urban districts. I am familiar with many curricula and their different approaches to instruction and learning, and many chemistry lab techniques. I have extensive knowledge in chemistry from HS to graduate level.
I am a native of Hong Kong. I lived there until I finished my undergraduate and master's degree. I was trained in classic Chinese and live in it all my life. I speak fluent Mandarin and Cantonese. I use many romanization methods; pinyin, Jyutping, Cantonese, strokes... to write Chinese in electronic devices to communicate, teach and work. I have taught Mandarin occasionally before.
