I am currently the Instructional Support Technician (IST) for the Department of Physics and Astronomy at SUNY New Paltz. That means I take care of all the labs and equipment for the introductory and advanced teaching labs, and I design and create physics and astronomy demonstrations, as well as new lab exercises. I’m in the process of setting up a machine shop and associated “maker space” for our department and use by other faculty and students, and to go along with that I’ve created a training program for the machines. I also teach one section of Physics 1 Laboratory (PHY211) on Monday evenings.
This site is a collection of articles about the things I’ve constructed, projects I’ve worked on, and various other things of interest. See the list on the right for specific topics and posts.
