Bio

Dr. Shore came to Rochester in 1996 to work at Eastman Kodak Company. At Kodak, he did computational modeling for research and development in a variety of product areas, most recently organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and is an inventor on 18 U.S. patents. He came to RIT in 2009.

Dr. Shore's research has spanned a variety of areas in computational physics. His research interests have, over time, included the glass transition and the slow growth of order in simple model systems, equilibrium crystal shapes and crystal growth, the flow of polymer melts, and optical modeling and light extraction in OLEDs. Recently, he has also developed an interest in global climate change.

Areas of Expertise

Currently Teaching

PHYS-212
4 Credits
This course is a continuation of PHYS-211, University Physics I. Topics include electrostatics, Gauss' law, electric field and potential, capacitance, resistance, DC circuits, magnetic field, Ampere's law, inductance, and geometrical and physical optics. The course is taught in a lecture/workshop format that integrates the material traditionally found in separate lecture and laboratory courses.
PHYS-207
1 Credits
This course is without exception only for students who have earned credit for PHYS-206. This is a course in calculus-based physics for science and engineering majors. Topics include mechanical oscillations and waves, and data presentation/analysis. The course is taught in a workshop format that integrates the material traditionally found in separate lecture and laboratory courses. This course together with PHYS-206 is equivalent to PHYS-211.
PHYS-209
1 Credits
This course is without exception only for students who have earned credit for PHYS-208. Topics include geometrical and physical optics. The course is taught in a lecture/workshop format that integrates the material traditionally found in separate lecture and laboratory courses. This course together with PHYS-208 is equivalent to PHYS-212.
