EXPERIENCE

Research Experience.
My primary M.S. and Ph.D.research experience lies with the application of two-dimensional NMR to the study of cobalt(III) complexes with chelate ligands. During graduate school I served a one-year appointment as TA for the USF NMR center, where I was called upon to perform routine instrument maintenance, run departmental samples, and train peers on the use of the instrument. I have experience with Bruker, Varian, and Anasazi NMR spectometers.

Computer Skills.. I have a particular interest in the development of educational tutorials, multimedia, and video. I have experience with Authorware, Adobe Premiere, Adobe Photohop, and Corel Draw. I have an excellent knowledge of HTML and web page development. I am also interested in computer modeling and animation. I have extensive experience with both Ray Drean and POV-Ray, which have been used to develop an extensive series of crystal structure visualizations.

Hobbies and Interests: Multimedia, computer animation, computer modeling, web page development, and photography.
