Tales and teachings from a third year PhD student in all aspects of chemistry! Including organic/physical/polymer and advanced materials chemistry and nanotechnology

Methodology

I am Brisbane based and close to the CBD. I can run face to face lessons at the University of Queensland with chemistry lab tours!

I have taught mostly laboratory based chemistry as well as workshops and tutorials. I am passionate about chemistry and helping students understand the wonders of how our universe functions.

My lessons would be geared towards proactive students who have specific questions or content to be covered so that the student gets the most relevant teaching and reward they require.

Background

I am a current PhD student working on the development of novel polymeric nanomaterials that show responsive behaviour in order to probe the tissue microenvironment through diagnostic molecular imaging. So I do everything from organic chemistry to physical/thermodynamics, electro and quantum chemistry, polymer chemistry and molecular imaging in biological systems.
I have tutored university level chemistry for 3 years teaching a variety of subjects in the undergraduate chemistry labs.
I am also an army officer in the Army Reserves
