I have taught at California State Polytechnic University at Pomona since obtaining my Ph.D. in 1981. My duties include teaching two lectures and three laboratories each quarter. In addition to my teaching duties, I am in charge of maintaining, operating and training for our 300 MHz NMR (Mercury, Broad Band). I occasionally teach a course in Modern Methods of NMR. I have also served as Chair of the University-wide Retention, Tenure and Promotion Committee, schedule coordinator for the Chemistry Department, Faculty Senator, vice-chair of the University Educational Policies committee, Chemistry Club Advisor, Science Council Advisor, serve on several departmental, college and university committees and am required to have five office hours per week. My research interests at Cal Poly have been focused on NMR analysis of natural products and the synthesis of strained hydrocarbons. I was promoted to associate professor in 1983 and full professor in 1988.
