Research Interest

My research interests include evidence-based methods for improving student learning and student success, both in physics and chemistry education, for struggling students and exceptional students alike. My other academic and technical interests are broad, spanning previous research and development work in condensed matter physics, reliability engineering, process re-engineering, and project management.  Recent applied physics interests include developing figures of merit for (a) Hoplite and other ancient technologies, and (b) interventional neurovascular medicine.
