I serve as the Chemical Hygiene Officer for the CECS. In that role, I work to ensure that students receive proper safety training prior to working in the laboratory and that all laboratories in the College receive an annual safety inspection. I am also responsible for ensuring that the College’s procedures for the acquisition, storage, and disposal of hazardous chemicals adhere to applicable local, state, and federal regulations.
I am also the faculty advisor for the UTC AIChE Student Chapter and Chem-E-Car Team. In that role, I aide student leadership in fundraising, organizing and promoting monthly meetings, and arranging for guest speakers and local industry tours. I also oversees the Chem-E-Car team’s participation in the annual competitions, where they have had quite a bit of success at the regional level in recent years.
