Teaching

I have a strong interest in teaching science at all levels. I've taught physics, astronomy and mathematics to continuing-education students, university undergraduates and high school students. (Please see CV for details.) I've also visited classrooms as a guest teacher to introduce and discuss ideas in astrophysics, such as the discovery of pulsars and truths and myths about black holes. I'm a firm believer that there is always a better way to explain something, and that the enthusiasm of a teacher is infectious.

2011-present: Guidance of graduate student research projects (see CV for details)

2009-2010: High school physics teacher at the Rudolf Steiner School in New York City. (9th-11th grades, in parallel with my PhD studies at Columbia University.)

2003-2009: Teaching assistant at Columbia University and Univesity of Pennsylvania. About 200 students taught in groups of 10-15. Mechanics, electromagnetism, various topics in astronomy and astrophysics.

2004: Physics Instructor at Penn Summer Science Academy, an international, hands-on program for advanced high school students.
