I've been at USNA since 2013 as a Permanent Military Professor. In my earlier Navy career I piloted EP-3E Aries II and P-3C Orion aircraft over Europe, Asia, and Africa. I've taught introductory physics classes SP211, SP212 and SP211R as well as SP444 Thermal Physics. I'm a member of the American Physical Society (APS) and the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT).
