- BS in Physics--Sonoma State University
- MS in Physics--University of California at Davis
- PhD in Physics--University of California at Davis
After three years as a student at Hartnell College
I graduated with degrees in Physics and Mathematics
and aspirations to be a college Physics
professor one day. As an undergraduate, I spent two summers
getting fantastic research experience as an intern.
I participated in two different projects: subsurface geophysics
at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and observational
astronomy at the University of Notre Dame.
In 2001 after two years at Sonoma State University, I finally finished my BS in Physics.
I began graduate school the following fall
at the University of California at Davis where I learned
a great deal about being a good teacher as well a good
researcher. I have recently finished my PhD in Nuclear Physics.
My specific research concerns searching for a new phase of matter
known as the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP)
in Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions. My hobbies
and interests include reading, traveling, musical
theater, biking, good films, good food,
Rock Band, and spending time with
with my family and friends.
