About Me: I got my undergraduate degree in Physics from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2007 where I did research in physics education research. I then went to SUNY Buffalo for my doctorate in physics which I received in 2013. My research there was on spintronics and electron spins in semi-conductors in high magnetic fields, especially quantum wells and quantum dots. Also in my time there I worked on 2-D semiconductors. Upon receiving my PhD I went to SUNY Delhi where I became a physics and chemistry instructor, teaching mostly through demonstrations.
