Experience at SAIC

Working at SAIC is a great deal of fun for me. I have always been interested in learning about other disciplines, and I have long been interested in bringing math and physics to non-scientists. Being at SAIC allows me to do both. I truly enjoy teaching my students how physics works and seeing them gain confidence in using it. It's particularly nice when they are able to connect it to their art or to some other part of their life.  I also enjoy learning about what my students and colleagues do. It often gives me a new perspective on how math/physics fits (or doesn't!) into people lives.


Current Interests

Particle physics, the violin, physics pedagogy, how Imogen Robertson uses words, teaching and the internet, patterns in music, our perception of math/physics from a gender-biased history, how people communicate in different fields, languages.
