Professor Bailey enjoys teaching and helping students learn by exploring and developing active-learning and case study exercises for the classroom and the lab. Many of the experiments that his General Chemistry students perform are open-ended and done in response to inquiries from various outside "clients." The laboratory reports for these experiments are then given context as letters of response to the respective client. His own research interests are in the field of bioinorganic chemistry, which is the study of how transition metal ions are used in biological systems. Professor Bailey likes to use chemical means to study biological problems.
