Postdoctoral Research Associate:
Alterations in Alzheimer's Disease -- Massachusetts General Hospital
and Boston University, Physics Department. (../AD/AD_index.html)
- Molecular Dynamics

- Summer 1994 -- May 1996.
Postdoctoral Research Associate and coordinator of the software
component of the WAMNET (WAter
and Molecular NETworks)
project, Boston University, Physics Department.
The WAMNET project deals with the
development of curriculum materials for high school courses in
chemistry and physics using interactive computer simulations.
Topics in the WAMNET project
- ideal gas law
- simple liquids
- hidrogen bonds in
- granular materials
The WAMNET simulations are
event--driven by an intuitive graphical user interface and make use of
a Molecular Dynamics engine.
- Spring 1992 -- Spring 1994.
Instructor for the XL Seminar Program for freshmen at MIT.
The XL Seminar Program consists of
small group teaching on general physics and calculus.
- Fall 1992 -- Spring 1994.
Tutor for the Tutorial Services Program sponsored by the Office of
Minority Education at MIT.
The tutorials are open to all
undergraduate students and covered undergraduate physics and
mathematics courses offered at MIT.
- Fall 1991 -- Spring 1994.
Research Assistant, MIT Physics Department.
- Fall 1986 -- Summer 1989.
