I have successfully defended my Ph. D. thesis

May 3rd, 2011

Disque 109.

I am a sixth year graduate student at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Originally I hail from Nevada, where I received a BS in both Mathematics and Physics at the University of Nevada, Reno. I have earned my Masters degree in Physics here at Drexel and have fulfilled the requirements for PhD. Candidacy. I have worked with Dr. Avi Ghosh and currently work with Dr. Jian-Min Yuan in the field of biophysics. If you are interested, there is a link above that contains a few selected published and unpublished papers I have written over the years.

You can find a few course web pages that I have previously maintained in the sidebar. Teaching at Drexel has been one of my greatest joys since I've started graduate work. It seems that my enthusiasm is reciprocated as I was selected as one of the outstanding TA's here at Drexel.
