B.S. Pace University
I serve as manager of the Chemistry Department's teaching laboratories. My work includes stocking laboratories and student drawers, setting up experiments, preparing chemicals and solutions, assembling needed items, checking instruments, and requesting orders for chemicals, consumables, safety supplies, glassware, and equipment.
I manage the student lab assistants and assist in their hiring, training, and scheduling. I ensure the proper collection, labeling, storage, and disposal of all chemical waste. I also monitor the maintenance, security, and functioning of Martin Chemistry Building, reporting problems to Physical Plant and checking on repairs.
Before coming to Davidson, I worked for 23 years in the polymer chemistry industry as a product development chemist.
