I joined Athabasca University in 2001, and I am currently the Academic Coordinator for the physics courses. I have teaching experience in conventional and distance education systems and with publications in particle physics, geomagnetism, and physics education. Current interests include the design of effective online courses and the development of low-cost home lab experiments.
