I am a research scientist, with a focus in theoretical physics and turning things invisible. I've taught math and science to students at all levels, from middle school to graduate students, with a focus on universally accessible, engaging presentations. If students are bored or confused it means I'm not doing my job, so I try to foster a conversational teaching style. My background - undergrad: applied physics at Cornell University, PhD: theoretical physics at MIT, postdoc: research scientist at University of Colorado Boulder - has given me insight into tricks and shortcuts to double check for common mistakes or help students solve problems even if they get stuck.

When I'm not teaching or working on research I learn new languages, hike, and fall down internet rabbit holes
