I deeply appreciate the many interactions with faculty and staff and the relationships that they have fostered through my roles as a member of the faculty, Chemistry Department Chair, and Associate Dean in the College of Science. Collaborators across the University have helped to create a stimulating environment in which to discover and study new materials and their properties.  I highly value work with colleagues in the NSF Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry, Materials Synthesis and Characterization Facility, Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Institute, and the Electron Microscope and NMR Facilities. Work with ecosVC, OSU Advantage, and the regional innovation ecosystem has catalyzed many successes in training a new generation of innovators and translating basic research to new startup companies. Lastly, I do hope that students have found our time together to be enabling and empowering and of some value beyond OSU.
