The fairest thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.
                                          --Albert Einstein in What I believe (1930).  

I am an associate Professor of Physics in the Department of Physical and Environmental Sciences (PENS). My research is collaborative in nature and gives me a chance to work closely with colleagues at the Division of Nearshore Research (DNR) where I conduct most of my research, the Center for Water Supply Studies (CWSS) and I am also a Harte Research Institute (HRI) Research Associate. Responsibilities in the department include the advising of future science teachers (Science 4-8 and Physical Science 8-12 Certifications) as part of our Science, Mathematics and Technology Education (SMTE) program and participation to the continuing development of our Coastal and Marine Systems Science (CMSS) PhD program (note that I no longer coordinate either program). Outside of our university I have the pleasure of serving as a member of the American Meteorological Society Committee on Artificial Intelligence Applications to Environmental Science (link to committee website).
