ExperienceI am a lover of Physics, and like to think that I'm living proof that women can excel in this field. I graduated from the University of Chicago, where my focus was Astrophysics. I went on to Northwestern University for my Master's. My degree was focused on Learning Sciences, essentially an Education degree with a focus on policy. I have several published papers in the area of physics, specifically having to do with gamma rays. I also participated in field experiments in South America. My graduate work was focused on developing more effective teaching strategies, exploring the use of technology in education, and promoting working to promote Math and Science as interesting areas for young women to explore. I have a knack for making subjects like Math, Science, and Physics approachable. Many young people are daunted, overwhelmed by new concepts, and therefore they assume these subjects are beyond their scope. I considerate my mission to win them over to these disciplines, and show them they are more than capable of mastery in these areas and can even have fun with them. My style of teaching is friendly and casual, yet serious and focused on the student's ultimate success. My main outside interest is music.
HobbiesI like writing short stories, drinking soda, and playing the ukelele.
