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. (Contact me if that might interest you.)

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.

Fountain of Qayt Bay
The Fountain of Qayt Bay is a domed public fountain (sabil) located on the western esplanade of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City, situated fifty metres west of the Dome of the Rock. Built in the fifteenth century by the Egyptians, it was completed in the reign of Qaitbay, Sultan of Egypt, after whom it is named. Placed on a raised prayer platform, together with a freestanding mihrab, the fountain is a three-tiered structure with a height of more than 13 metres (43 ft), and sits above an underground reservoir.Photograph: Godot13
