I am originally from McAdoo, PA and attended DeSales University (Center Valley, PA) for my B.S. in Chemistry and B.S. in Environmental Science. I then attended Lehigh University (Bethlehem, PA) and received my Ph.D in Chemistry in 2008. My post-doctoral research was at the DOE's Savannah River National Laboratory (Aiken, SC) from 2009-2011. After my post-doc, I was a Principal Scientist at the Savannah River National Laboratory (2011-2017) before I joined the Chemistry & Biochemistry Department at CSUN in the Fall of 2017. I also enjoy playing basketball and watching the New York Knicks and New York Jets in my free time.
