My research background lies at the intersection of experimental liquid state physics and biophysics (here are my publications). Currently, I am transforming the instruction in introductory courses for life science majors by blending flipped classroom and other techniques with the extensive development of physiologically relevant content. I also develop tools for student self-diagnosis.

My key responsibility is the instruction in large-enrollment introductory physics courses for undergraduate students majoring in engineering, natural sciences, life sciences, and premed. I routinely teach introductory courses in the department including: Phys. 0110, 0111, 0174, 0175, 0410, and 0411.
