Bio

Chemistry is a challenging course with a bad reputation. It is a subject that demands a lot of practice. I’m here to help you understand the material and build your confidence.

I double majored in forensic science and forensic chemistry from Utah Valley University (UVU). While I was at UVU, I absolutely fell in love with my organic chemistry class. I enjoyed being able to predict chemical reactivity and using this knowledge to make organic molecules. I quickly came to the realization...

Chemistry is a challenging course with a bad reputation. It is a subject that demands a lot of practice. I’m here to help you understand the material and build your confidence.

I double majored in forensic science and forensic chemistry from Utah Valley University (UVU). While I was at UVU, I absolutely fell in love with my organic chemistry class. I enjoyed being able to predict chemical reactivity and using this knowledge to make organic molecules. I quickly came to the realization that I thoroughly enjoyed organic chemistry and wanted to learn more.

I completed my PhD (Organic) at Brigham Young University, Provo (BYU). I explored the impact of site-specific PEGylation (polyethylene glycol) on protein conformational and proteolytic stability. I developed a structure-based method for predicting locations within proteins where PEG increases protein conformational stability and showed that PEG-based stabilization is associated with enhanced proteolytic resistance. Criteria for Selecting PEGylation Sites on Proteins for Higher Thermodynamic and Proteolytic Stability. JACS 2014, 136 (50), 17547-17560.

After my PhD, I joined the lab of Champak Chatterjee at the University of Washington as a post-doc. I used semi-synthetic strategies to generate site-selective modified cancer fighting proteins to study the structure-function of post-translationally modified proteins.

Excellent and Patient Tutor

Paul is an excellent tutor! He really helped prepare me for my Organic Chemistry tests. My test scores increased after my tutoring sessions with Paul and he definitely makes himself available to you and helps with whatever questions you may have. I regret not getting his help earlier because he really explains the material well and makes sure you understand a problem before moving onto the next one. I would highly recommend him!
