About Me

I’m an assistant professor of physics at a small liberal arts college. I do research primarily in quantitative nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, and collaborate with faculty in the health sciences on projects on ultrasound and EEG. All of my research focuses on projects that can be done with undergraduate students.

I teach a collection of courses that run from algebra-based non-majors intro physics to upper-level analytical mechanics. I enjoy keeping up with the formal literature and informal social media discussions on how to teach physics well.
