After 15 years of active computational chemistry research spanning the fields of Quantum Chemistry and Molecular Dynamics she has turned her efforts to focus on the uses of computers in Chemical Education. The major thrust here is to develop instructional materials for the Physical Chemistry Curriculum using commercially available software. These materials are designed to take advantage of the research in the learning styles and intellectual development stages of adults and young adults and to create more active learning environments within which students can learn more effectively and efficiently. She is currently creating a WWW site for physical chemistry instructional materials, http://www.monmouth.edu/~tzielins/mathcad. Other current research interests include 1) elucidation of the fine structure of DNA mini-helices through molecular dynamics computer simulations and 2) structure function relationships of biomacromolecules. She has used computers in teaching and research for her entire 35 year career.
