Quantum spin choreographer, molder of minds, fan of fiction and baked goods.
Past research in novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques for 3D imaging of solids and using optical magnetometry for low-field nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
Current research involves building a low-cost MRI setup to explore cross-disciplinary magnetic resonance (MR) applications. In order to make the wonders of MR more widely accessible, we share all our design and analysis files via open-source outlets so that others can more easily replicate and add to our work.
Previously taught courses at Wesleyan University and Princeton University, including helping develop investigative science learning environment physics labs.
Currently designing lab-based courses to add to the Sarah Lawrence College curriculum, as well as applying physics education research-based methodologies to the core physics courses.
PhD in Physics, 2013
MS in Physics, 2009
BA in Physics, 2007
I am always on the lookout for new courses to contribute to the physics curriculum, as well as ways to improve our current offerings. (The motivated and engaged student population at Sarah Lawrence is fortunately a great audience for testing out new teaching techniques!)
I fully ‘flipped’ the classroom for my general physics courses this past year, with great success. I plan to add in more computation and further developing the labs this year. After a successful launch of my workshop-based “Time to Tinker” course, I am currently designing an advanced lab course to be taught in Spring 2020 called “Resonance and Its Applications”.
My current courses for the 2019-2020 academic year are:
3D Print designs for a linear actuator to discretely move NMR sample tube.
Information towards creating a strong, homogeneous magnetic field and linear gradient for imaging using a 3D printer and permanent magnets.
Implementing 3D printed gradients for use in low-cost magnetic resonance imaging.
