Timothy P. Walsh is a former undergraduate researcher from the Burdette group. Walsh graduated with a chemistry degree from UConn in 2011. In his 3 year tenure in the Burdette group, he worked on Cleav photocages. Walsh also worked as a research scientist for Inframat Corporation during his senior year at UConn. After graduation, he enrolled in the MAT graduate program at Central Connecticut State University, which is designed to educate teachers in high needs content areas (chemistry, physics, mathematics, technology and language) and allows students to complete a master's degree within a year. He will receive a master's in teaching in 2012. Currently, he works as a student chemistry teacher at Metropolitan Learning Center in Bloomfield, CT and plans to pursue work as a secondary educator in chemistry and biology. His current action research project involves the impact of using guided notes instruction in urban chemistry secondary classrooms. Walsh's future goals involve further graduate education in chemistry and teaching, and aspiring to be a collegiate instructor or secondary curriculum coordinator.
