My interest in teaching focuses on continuously improving the pedagogy in writing-intensive courses of physical chemistry laboratories. My research involves studying the polymerization of the beta-Amyloid (Abeta) peptides related to Alzheimer’s disease using laser fluorescence confocal microscopy and characterizing the conformations of the Abeta dimer and oligomers with single-molecule Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer techniques.
