I received a B.S. in physics and mathematics from Michigan State University and a Ph.D. in physics from The University of Texas at Austin. I subsequently worked as a research physicist at the National Institutes of Standards and Technology, University of Windsor, Case Western Reserve University, and the University of Michigan, and as an adjunct professor at Lawrence Technological University. I am currently an associate professor of physics at Kettering University in Flint, Michigan, where I teach introductory and upper-level physics courses and do research with undergraduates in acoustics and ultrasonics. I am also a member of Sigma Pi Sigma physics honor society and serve as our chapter’s advisor.
At Kettering, students alternate between school and co-op terms, and as such, we actually have two separate “A” and “B” chapters that also alternate between quarters. I have had the pleasure to serve as the faculty advisor for both chapters since starting at Kettering in 2011. During that period, we have received 8 Outstanding Chapter Awards, 10 Distinguished Chapter Awards, 2 Chapter Research Awards, and 1 Blake Lilly Award.
