My favorite teaching activities are working on research projects with graduate and undergraduate students. I love to engage students in the discovery process of research. The work in my lab relates to studying how bacteria attach to different kinds of surfaces. For example, we have been studying whether compounds in cranberry juice can inhibit bacteria from colonizing the cells that line the bladder. We also work on strategies to kill pathogenic bacteria using antimicrobial peptides. Read more...

To me, there is nothing better than struggling with a problem and finally understanding and solving it. I enjoy teaching chemical engineering students at WPI, because most of them also like the thrill that occurs when seemingly complicated problems start to make sense. I particularly enjoy teaching our unit operations laboratory class, where students get hands-on experience with process equipment. For some students, a light switches on when theory and experiment are combined in the lab. Read more...

My research involves educational scholarship. That includes understanding learning in hands-on labs compared to virtual or remotely operated labs; learning in international contexts; and how safety, ethics, and social responsibility can be effectively integrated into the chemical engineering curriculum. WPI is a great place to conduct this type of work because of our project-based program, our extensive global perspective program, and our philosophy of student-centered learning. Read more...

I have been teaching at WPI for more than 30 years and am the director of The Stantec Project Center. I still feel very young and enthusiastic about what I do, mainly because the young people at WPI are very enthusiastic about what they do; it rubs off. Read more...

I believe strongly in the primacy of the quality of the student-teacher relationship, its intellectual and emotional rewards, and its key role in the attainment of educational objectives such as development of the student's critical thinking, capacity for self-exploration, and independence of judgment. At WPI, curricula are creatively designed to highlight the many nuanced forms and features of the interaction between science, technology, culture, and society. Read more...

Participating in open-ended projects at various levels has been among the most stimulating and mind-broadening activities in my 35 years at WPI. While I have been engaged in zeolite crystallization research for over 30 years, I also have been active in studying the use of zeolites for organics remediation of water. Both at the MQP and graduate student research level, we have made several fascinating discoveries using both experimental observations and computational chemistry techniques. Read more...
