Dr. Teese received an M.A. in experimental physics and a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the University of Texas at Austin. He worked on theoretical elementary particle physics during postdoctoral positions at the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich and at the University of Mainz. His current interests include physics education research and curriculum development. He is the director of the LivePhoto Physics project, which published a book of video-analysis activities for introductory physics courses and is currently developing Interactive Video Vignettes. The project has been holding frequent workshops for university and high-school teachers. He is also leading the Teamworks project, which is developing an on-line authoring system for undergraduate laboratory reports.
