About me
I am a medicinal chemist with a PhD in organic chemistry. I have worked in both academic and industrial settings doing teaching, basic research and applied research mostly in the area of drug discovery.

I currently work for a small company that collaborates with academic labs to pursue drug discovery research and to help them secure funding, such as SBIR grants, that would be otherwise unavailable to them.

I have been actively editing Wikipedia for more than ten years. I try to improve Wikipedia by creating, updating, correcting, organizing, and copyediting articles related to organic chemistry, particularly heterocyclic compounds and natural organic compounds. To get a better idea of my interests, just take a look at some of the articles I have started or this list of the most recent of the ~8000 chemical structure images I have uploaded, or see my contributions.

With my wife and kids, I live in suburban Pennsylvania.

Picture of the day
Map accompanying the novel Mundus Alter et Idem
Mundus Alter et Idem (Another World and Yet the Same) is a satirical dystopian novel written by the English writer and bishop Joseph Hall around 1605. In the novel, the narrator takes a voyage in the ship Fantasia through the southern seas, visiting the lands of Crapulia, Viraginia, Moronia, and Lavernia (populated by gluttons, nags, fools, and thieves, respectively). These locations feature on this map, which accompanies the novel.Map credit: Joseph Hall
