are in solid state inorganic chemistry, focused on understanding the
between structure, composition, and properties in early transition
oxides. Materials that interest me include superconductors,
and solid state battery materials. If you want to learn more

Although the Pacific Northwest has captured my heart, originally I hail
from the heartland, Peoria, Illinois
to be exact. I spent my college years under the golden dome at
of Notre Dame, where I received a B.S. in Chemistry. After 4
at Notre Dame, I headed west to UC
Berkeley for graduate school, where I worked with Prof.
Angelica Stacy. I received my Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1991 and
back to the heartland for a Postdoctoral position with Arthur
B. Ellis at the University of
I moved to Reed in January of 1993, conveniently skipping the remainder
of the Wisconsin winter! When the Rhodies started blooming in
knew I had found my new home.
In 1999-2000, I spent a sabbatical at the University of Oxford's Inorganic
Chemistry Laboratory working with Prof.
Dermot O'Hare doing in situ
diffraction studies of high temperature reactions. In 2006-07, I
enjoyed my second sabbatical working on lithium ion battery
materials in the group of Dr. Debra R. Rolison at the Naval Research Laboratory in
Washington, D.C. I have enjoyed my sabbaticals so much that I am looking for a way to make them permanent...I hear that's called retirement!
