My research reflects my background in industrial research and development in
engineering polymers. This includes monomer and polymer synthesis, polymer
modification/copolymerization by reactive extrusion, synthesis and characterization of
model systems for polymers, and application of dynamic NMR to amide conformation
problems. 

Degrees: B.S. University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC (1981); Ph.D. The University
of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI (1986); Post doctoral training; The University of Michigan,
Ann Arbor, MI (1987) 

Teaching responsibilities: Organic Chemistry, Polymer chemistry, Theory and practice of
NMR spectroscopy.
