In addition to a long standing interest in mechanistic organic chemistry, I have recently become interested in the intersection between chemistry and the visual arts. I participated in the 2008 Chemistry in Art Workshop and the 2009 Advanced Chemistry in Art Workshop sponsored by the NSF-Center for Workshops in the Chemical Sciences. Building on the workshop experience I developed a course entitled Chemistry of Materials for Art. I teach this course on a regular basis as part of an interdisciplinary curriculum within the CWU Douglas Honors College. I spent the fall of 2010 as a visiting scientist in the conservation laboratories at the Royal British Columbia Museum, working on the identification and conservation of plastic materials in the museum collection. I am currently collaborating with the Yakima Valley Museum and CWU undergraduate students on the identification of museum plastics, as well as the development of improved testing procedures.
