I am a Professor and Chair of My research interests in theoretical physics lie in the mathematical
and computational formulations of quantum mechanics (SUSY QM,
evolution of wave packets, quasi-probability distributions in
phase space, and applications of sum rules) and abelian and non-abelian
quantum field theories (QED and QCD). Most recent theoretical works

Ten students have worked with me on quantum
mechanics research projects since I arrived at Davidson, some were
supported by a Research Corporation grant. During the '05-'06
academic year,
My research interests in physics education research and development lie in the development
and testing of interactive curricular materials (using Open Source Physics programs) for use
in a wide variety of physics courses (from introductory physics to
advanced quantum mechanics). As part of this research, I have authored or co-authored over
1000 computer-based interactive exercises, co-authored numerous articles, and co-authored
seven books.
This work is supported during '02 - '05 and '05 - '08 by grants from the
National Science Foundation.I am currently the Section Representative of the North Carolina Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), a member of the AAPT's Committee on Undergraduate Education, and a member of the ComPADRE Quantum Physics Editorial Board. I have been the Books Department Editor for |
