Teaching & Outreach
University of Toronto
I currently teach PHY205: The Physics of Everyday Life and am the course and practical coordinator for PHY293: Waves and Modern Physics. I have also been an instructor and coordinator for PHY131/PHY132: Introduction to Physics, U of T's largest 1st year physics course. Highlights (for me) include launching an arrow and playing with a flaming Ruben's tube in Convocation Hall.
I love sharing and interacting with explorers of all ages through my public and private talks. I have also been a planetarium presenter at the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics where I created Our Musical Universe.
In 2018-2019 I was professor of astronomy at Seneca College where I taught a course on the deep connections between music and astronomy. Students learned the foundations of astronomy, music, and computer programming and created their own music using astronomical data.
