I am a sociable Italian who has been living in England for more than ten years (not considering 4 more more years of "sweat" from the good old days of my PhD. What I love about chemistry? That you can apply its straight and simple rules to solve complex problems in real life scenarios. But of course, that might just be my personal opinion, made after 18 years working as a Senior Chemist specialized in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals. What learning path would I set for a student? (i) first: establish the pillars of the theory by learning the essential rules, (ii) second: give him/her guidance on how to apply them in real cases (iii) third: test the skills learned to solving both real chemistry problems as well as problems more relevant to the actual exam. Something else about me ? I love teaching. What: Afro Cuban dancing for example (I have been dancing for 19 years).
