I have been on the physics faculty at UVU since August, 2012. I teach courses across the entire physics curriculum, both theoretical and experimental.

My Ph.D. was in experimental particle physics. After serving a postdoctoral appointment at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland (where I specialized in vertex detector physics) I began college teaching. Before coming to UVU I taught at Grinnell College (Iowa), Williams College (MA), Pima Community College and the University of Arizona (Tucson), and the University of Puget Sound (WA).

My research work now involves thin film physics and nanotechnology education. I am currently the Principal Investigator on the NSF grant, "Integrating Environmentally Improved Photolithography Technology and Virtual Reality into Advanced Nanotechnology Education," ($703,906), a project to bring advanced nanotechnology education to UVU. The first nanotechnology course (PHYS 2800) is happening right now!
