Teaching

courses taught

  • PHYS 3330 - Electronics for the Physical Sciences
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019
    Introduces laboratory electronics for physical science students. Includes basic electronic instruments, dc bridge circuits, operational amplifiers, bipolar transistors, field-effect transistors, photodiodes, noise in electronic circuits, digital logic and microcontrollers. Students gain hands-on experience in designing, building and debugging circuits. Two lectures and one three hour laboratory per week. Concludes with a three-week project in which students design and build an experiment of their choice and present a seminar on the results.
  • PHYS 4430 - Advanced Laboratory
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Two lectures, one lab per week. Experiments introduce students to realities of the experimental physics so they gain a better understanding of theory and an appreciation of the vast amount of experimental work done in the physical sciences today. Same as PHYS 5430.
