I'm a physics lecturer at the University of California, Los Angeles.  I graduated with a B.S. in mathematics and a B.A. in physics from UC Berkeley in 2008, and I received a Ph.D. in physics from the UCLA in the Spring of 2014.  My doctoral research was in high-energy physics and centered on aspects of holography -- the AdS/CFT correspondence in particular.  My advisor was Michael Gutperle.

Here is my CV.

I'm passionate about spreading scientific thinking and about helping people learn difficult physics and mathematics.  I'm obsessed with creating learning environments that are optimal for student learning.  I believe in the efficacy of collaborative, constructivist learning environments.  I believe that learning can and should be inspirational. 

I'm an active member of the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) and the Partnership for Integration of Computation in Undergraduate Physics (PICUP), and I'm an instructional consultant for the Center of Education Innovation and Learning in the Sciences (CEILS)
