I am a MacVicar Faculty Fellow, and from 2000 to 2006 was heavily involved in the effort to change introductory physics at MIT to an interactive format (see a brief history of this effort by Dr. Lori Breslow at "Wrestling with Pedagogical Change"). For these efforts I was honored as the 2016 Oersted Medalist of the American Association of Physics Teachers.

I am very interested in visualization, especially in electromagnetism (see my electromagnetism visualization page).
