       My professional interests lie primarily in the history of science, with special emphasis on the history of chemistry.  Among other activities, this has led to the publication of a book, titled "Core Beliefs of the Physical Sciences:  The History of Our Concepts" (Cengage:  Mason, OH; 1st edition, 2010; 2nd edition, 2012).

Other professional activities have included research in inorganic and organometallic chemistry, authorship of a textbook (Inorganic Chemistry, published by Brooks/Cole) and membership on four different national examination committees sponsored by the American Chemical Society.

My teaching responsibilities here at Fredonia include introductory-level General Chemistry, several advanced courses for majors (Inorganic Chemistry, Introduction to Research, and Applied Spectroscopy), and a College Core Curriculum course for non-majors titled Scientific Revolutions
