Teaching Experience

  • Chemical Elements in Living Systems (Winter 2021)
    • University of Toronto Scarborough – Inorganic chemistry
    • From calendar: This course will explore the role of the chemical elements other than “the big six” (C, H, O, N, P, S) in living systems, with a focus on metal cations. The topic includes geochemistry and early life, regulation and uptake of metallic elements, structure-function relationships in metalloproteins.
  • Intermediate Inorganic chemistry (Winter 2021)
    • University of Toronto Scarborough – Inorganic chemistry
    • From calendar: Structure, bonding, spectroscopy and reactivity of transition metal compounds. After an overview of descriptive chemistry, the focus is on coordination and organometallic chemistry, with an introduction to catalysis and biocoordination chemistry. The laboratory focuses on intermediate and advanced inorganic syntheses.
  • Topics in inorganic chemistry (Fall 2020)
    • University of Toronto Scarborough – Inorganic chemistry
    • From calendar: Advanced topics in inorganic chemistry will be covered at a modern research level. The exact topic will be announced in the Winter Session prior to the course being offered.
