I grew up in Idaho. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in physics from Brigham Young University in 1993. I then went to Seattle, Washington to attend graduate school at the University of Washington. There I did work in the field of statistical mechanics with Marcel den Nijs. I earned my Ph.D. in physics in 1999. The title of my dissertation is “Fluctuating Steps on Crystal Surfaces”.
I had been interested in teaching since working as a teaching assistant at Brigham Young University. At the University of Washington, I also worked with students as a teaching assistant. In the fall of 1999, I started teaching at Black Hawk College. I teach courses in algebra- and calculus-based physics, conceptual physics, astronomy, and engineering mechanics.
