I am a lifelong learner, teacher, and researcher in the field of physics. I received a PhD in Physics from the University of Michigan and a BS in Physics from Rice University. I have four years of physics teaching experience at the University of Michigan, primarily undergraduate laboratory courses with an emphasis on electromagnetism, circuits, waves, optics, and real-world applications of these and other physical phenomena. Many of these courses, including one I helped design, focused on helping non-STEM students master physics concepts that may be difficult to grasp in a standard classroom setting. I have tutored in a variety of subjects since high school, but most recently I have spent several years helping students understand concepts and succeed in coursework throughout a large variety of college-level physics topics, from basic mechanics to advanced electrodynamics and special relativity.

I am an enthusiastic teacher, and while I prepare students to succeed in their coursework, I always hope to impart some of my passion in the subject matter, conveying the ways in which abstract topics tie into fascinating real world phenomena. My love of physics also ties in with a strong interest in diverse subjects from philosophy to programming. I am also happy to impart whatever wisdom I can about my experiences in academia, where I spent seven years as a graduate student in experimental condensed matter physics.
