More About Me

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


  • BIPH 375: Biophysics

    A study of the application of the fundamentals of physics to the problems of the biological sciences. Emphasis is placed upon representative topics demonstrating the analytical methods and the theory of those methods used in biophysics. Students will be expected to read and discuss current literature. Examples of topics include biophysical modeling, organ systems, and electromagnetic interactions. Prerequisites: BIOL 203 or BIOL 222, PHYS 223, MATH 222, or permission of instructor. Offered fall, even years

  • PHYS 341: Seminar in Physics

    Presentations are made by students enrolled, faculty members, and invited guests. Each student is expected to attend each scheduled meeting and to make at least one oral presentation on a topic approved by the instructor. Students must also write critiques of presentations.

  • 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.
