I mentor and guide students on creating and implementing sustainability projects at CSUCI in two of my chemistry courses. Typically, in the Fall Semester in my Environmental Chemistry class (Chem 101) the students design a project and work to obtain funding. In the Spring Semester, in my Energy and Society class (Chem 344) the students work to implement the projects. Below are brief descriptions of our successful projects.



The success of our sustainability projects is due to a collaborative effort from other faculty and staff. With our combined efforts we have executed several successful projects. Three individuals have been instrumental to all of the projects success. I am especially grateful to our Chair of the Chemistry Department, Professor Simone Aloisio who has made these projects possible through his support and wisdom. I am also thankful to Gina Matibag, Administrative Analyst from Academic Affairs and Coleen Barsley the Sustainability & Operations Analyst for CSUCI who have been instrumental in providing insight and advice on every project.
