Teaching & Outreach
University of Toronto
I'm an Assistant Professor Teaching Stream and TA Coordinator at U of T. I enjoy teaching The Physics of Everyday Life and am the course and practical coordinator for 2nd year physics for engineers. I have also been an instructor and coordinator for Introduction to Physics I & II, 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.
