I’m a geek of many flavors. I’ve got a PhD in physics and I’m a science educator and communicator, plus I’m an audiogeek (think podcasts and radio). My coolest job was as a postdoc at the Exploratorium Museum of Science in San Francisco, and the next-coolest was as an intern at the science desk at National Public Radio. I’ve done some freelance science journalism (see publications below), have several podcast series, and was on the air on NPR. I get to have a lot of fun.
I am now a postdoc at the University of Colorado at Boulder in Physics Education Research. I’m currently working on reforming college physics courses, ostensibly so that students learn more. I’m here to learn how people learn, so I can do more effective science education and outreach. I am currently looking for contract work — here’s my resume.
The posts on this blog represent my personal opinions and are not endorsed or supported in any way by the University of Colorado or the Exploratorium. This is my own blog, but heavily influenced by my employment experiences, past and present!
About this blog
This blog is a place where I can post interesting science tidbits or musings about science, science education, and science communication. I have a lot here for K-12 science educators, including hands-on activities and pedagogical tips. I also have a quite a few posts about how people learn, drawn from science education research. One of the most popular parts of the blogs are my science myths and bad science sections. Use the categories and tags to navigate among the different portions of the blog, as there is a wide variety of topics.
