About Me

I am currently (since 2010) an assistant professor in the Chemistry and Engineering Physics department at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Most of the work featured in my website was done as a postdoc (2008-2010) in Dave Pritchard's physics education research group (RELATE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. My Ph.D (2005) is in astrophysics/cosmology from the University of Michigan, advised by Gordon Kane and Fred Adams. My undergraduate education was at the University of Wisconsin (Madison), where I worked on numerical models of the Lyman-alpha forest under the supervision of Don Cox. In between getting my Ph.D and joining the RELATE group, I taught introductory college physics at the Naval Academy Peparatory School (NAPS) in Newport, RI.
