Curriculum Vitae


  • Ph.D., Physics; Stanford University

  • A.B., Physics Magna Cum Laude with highest honors; Harvard University

More About Me

My current areas of research include particle time-of-flightenergy spectroscopy, optical properties of aerosol particles, tabletop quantum mechanics using correlated photons, Passively coupled in-vivo force sensors and nitrogen vacancy magnetometry. 


  • PHYS 114: Physics I Lab

    A lab course to complement General Physics I and Analytical Physics I lectures. Experiments in kinematics, projectile motion, Newton's laws, momentum, and energy conservation will be performed.

  • PHYS 123: Analytical Physics I

    An analytical, calculus-based treatment of kinematics, Newton's laws, kinetic and potential energy, friction, linear momentum, angular momentum, rotational dynamics, gravitational physics, and simple harmonic motion.

  • PHYS 362: Intermediate Laboratory

    Devoted to the understanding of some of the classic experiments in physics. Experiments are from all fields of physics, but particular attention is given to experiments which complement courses being taken concurrently.
