I currently serve as the Director of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) and Sigma Pi Sigma, the Physics Honors Society, for AIP, where we support undergraduate physics and astronomy students, advisers, and departments.
While I am currently adjunct at George Washington University, I was a tenured Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Appalachian State University where I focused on Nanoscience, electronics, acoustics, and microscopy. Before teaching, I was fortunate enough to be a National Research Council fellow at NIST in the Electronics and Electrical Engineering Laboratory within the Semiconductor Electronics Division. There we studied organic crystals and nano electronic devices. None of that would have been possible without my Ph.D. work in the Surface Science Group at the University of Maryland – College Park. My motto is, “One spherical cow approximation at a time…”
