Since joining the Hood faculty in 1983, I have taught all of the introductory physics courses and those required for the physics minor. In addition, I have taught courses for the Honors Program and the First-Year Seminar.

My most recent research focuses on projects with students completing the computational science major including projects in computational fluid dynamics and quantum modeling. I have also published the problem solution manual to accompany the 3rd and 4th edition of Modern Physics for Scientists and Engineers by Thornton and Rex.

In my spare time, I have performed with the Frederick Camerata and Maryland Concert Opera in a variety of operatic productions.
