I recently graduated from Bard College at Simon's Rock with a BA in Physics and Visual Studies. My research areas in Physics include quantum optics and geophysics, particularly about entanglement and the Earth's inner core, respectively. My focus in Visual Studies is lens arts and film studies with a strong lean towards formalism. The two disciplines may seem very unrelated to you, but it is the combination of the two that makes me a great student and teacher! A few fun facts about my college experience: I actually finished high school in 3 years and began college a year earlier than usual, and I studied abroad in Scotland (University of Glasgow) and the Czech Republic (Film Academy of Prague) during my junior year!

My teaching experience include peer tutoring during my college years, working with both individual students and entire classes on college-level physics, math, and Spanish. Just after receiving my BA, I designed and taught my first full course on Climate Change at the 10th grade level. We covered all sorts of material, including the Physics and Chemistry of the atmosphere and ocean, all the way to a Model UN simulation to discuss global policies!

I am moving onto a PhD program in Physics at Northeastern University, but I hope to continue to teaching throughout and after the program. I love helping students reach their potential. The pride and joy of watching my students come to an understanding with new concepts, develop a love for new disciplines, and find passion for learning -- it is the most beautiful thing I have experienced. And it's all thanks to you, the amazing, bright, and motivated students!
