Areas of Expertise

Currently Teaching

PHYS-211
4 Credits
This is a course in calculus-based physics for science and engineering majors. Topics include kinematics, planar motion, Newton's Laws, gravitation, work and energy, momentum and impulse, conservation laws, systems of particles, rotational motion, static equilibrium, 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.
PHYS-424
3 Credits
This course is a study of the properties and structure of the atomic nucleus as determined by experiments and theory. Topics for the course include a description and quantum-mechanical treatment of radioactive decay, nuclear reactions, basic aspects of nuclear radiation detection, and selected applications of nuclear physics.
MTSE-790
1 - 9 Credits
Dissertation research by the candidate for an appropriate topic as arranged between the candidate and the research advisor.
PHYS-216
4 Credits
This is a course in calculus-based physics for physics majors. Topics include kinematics, planar motion, Newton’s Laws, gravitation, work and energy, momentum and impulse, conservation laws, systems of particles, rotational motion, static equilibrium, mechanical oscillations and waves, and data presentation/analysis. Calculus and basic numerical techniques will be applied throughout the course to analyze non-idealized complex systems. The course is taught in a workshop format that integrates the material traditionally found in separate lecture and laboratory courses. The course will also include enrichment activities connecting current developments in the field of physics.
