I am an Associate Professor of Physics at the University of Texas at El Paso. Seventeen years ago I did experimental surface physics. Since then I have specialized in physics and science education in general.

Being a “quantitative kinda guy” my educational research involves the heavy use of multivariate statistics.

While I still teach physics, I have also taught algebra/trigonometry, calculus, probability and statistics, first semester chemistry, and educational research methods.
