My research interests are in astrophysics and cosmology, specifically the nature of dark matter and conditions in the early universe. I teach a variety of physics courses at all levels.
I also enjoy teaching introductory astronomy courses appropriate for students majoring in the social sciences and humanities. Two such courses that I teach regularly are Astronomy 101 – The Milky Way Galaxy and Astronomy 104 – Cosmology in the Twentieth Century. I have a lot of fun with the First-Year Seminar FYS 340 – Planetarium Production, in which students conceive, write, produce, and present shows in the College’s Ladd Planetarium.
