Research Interests

Dr. Parise's interests include development of more effective teaching methods for large lecture courses and improving organic chemistry pedagogy in both the classroom and laboratory. He administers a new instructor training program in organic chemistry and is currently developing auxiliary courses aimed at supplementing student preparation for introductory organic courses.

Dr. Parise is coauthor of the textbook "Organic Chemistry, 7th Edition," with Marc Loudon, and its Study Guide and Solutions Manual. He is also developing a new interactive digital Organic Chemistry textbook, which focuses on helping students develop the skills necessary to succeed in an organic chemistry course.
