About

I consider myself to be a chemistry educator and researcher, and I educate students in chemistry both through being a part of my research group and through my classes and outreach activities. I run a research group of postdoctoral fellows and graduate and undergraduate students. Additionally I teach inorganic, organic and general chemistry.

I have always had a strong interest in both research and education. My love of science brought me to Cornell and Columbia to study chemistry. Then a love of teaching led me to focus on teaching undergraduates for a while, first at F&M, and then at Salisbury U. It was at Salisbury that I realized that I really enjoyed running a research group. I moved to Drexel in 2007.

My research has focused on bioinorganic and organometallic chemistry. We are interested in exploring how hydrogen bonding groups impact catalysis, due to both potential applications and pure science reasons (functional models help us better understand how enzymes work). Our group mission also includes application of these concepts to problems that relate to sustainability and greener chemistry. While we primarily approach problems from an inorganic perspective, we are also very interested in organic synthesis of new (often water-soluble) ligands.

I live in Philadelphia with my husband (David Riley), who is a meteorologist, and daughter Genevieve who is an energetic toddler.
