What is your teaching style?

Whether I’m lecturing to 130 people in the Auditorium, or working with a group of three in the lab, I want to make sure every student gets every bit of energy I’ve got. Physics is big and dynamic and I aim to personify that in the classroom.

Why do you do what you do?

I teach Physics because while I’m in awe of everything humans have learned, I’m even more blown away by everything we still have yet to discover. We can see so much because we are standing on the shoulders of giants and it is my duty to make sure everyone has a chance at that same view.

How do you make learning engaging?

No one ever learned Physics by sitting idly; we learn Physics by doing. So that’s how the class runs; we talk, we write, we discuss, we make mistakes and we investigate.

What should students know about you?

That I’m working to make the world a better place, and expect the same from them.
