Research/Areas of Interest

In the field of Biochemistry: biochemistry courses for science majors, General, Organic and Biological (GOB) chemistry courses for allied-health majors, drug delivery systems, drug metabolism, analytical instrumentation in biochemistry: FTIR spectroscopy, HPLC, UV-vis, GC-MS, fluorometry.

In the field of Chemical Education: design and development of assessment materials in the area of organic chemistry and biochemistry, Problem-Based Learning (PBL), qualitative, quantitative and psychometric research methodology

Biochemistry represents the bridge between biology and chemistry. Many pre-health and allied-health students find topics such as biomolecules and metabolism fascinating as they apply to life processes, health, and diseases. However, one of the difficult aspects of this course arises from the fact that students must be able to transfer knowledge of concepts presented in previous chemistry courses.

Currently, Dr. Brown research group is exploring the following topics:

The exploration of these research topics utilizes qualitative and quantitative research methodologies as for example interviews (students, faculty) and thematic analysis, combined with general and comparative statistics and psychometric methods.

In the field of Biochemistry, research with undergraduate students explores areas of drug delivery systems, drug metabolism by using analytical instrumentation as: HPLC, FTIR spectroscopy, UV-vis, GC-MS, fluorometry.
