Associate Professor of Physics


Educational Background: Ph.D., Physics, Penn-State University, State College, PA

Teaching Interests: General physics, physics applied to life sciences and architecture, general physics lab and mathematics.

It is a great pleasure to guide my students through the beauty of the physics laws.

Research Interests: I earned my Ph.D. in quantum gravity by investigating lower dimensional spacetime models. I am also interested in medical physics and most recently in physics education. There is much to study about the learning and understanding processes that students face in introductory physics.
