Physics teacher, Year 13 Tutor

As a physics and astronomy student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the U.S.A., I co-authored several journal articles related to pulsating variable stars. When I entered graduate school, I continued at UNL as a graduate research and teaching assistant, where I conducted research with a 4-meter telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona. Since these days as a student, I have loved gazing at the heavens and discovering the structure and beauty of the physical universe, alongside of students with inquiring minds.
 
I began teaching physics and astronomy laboratories and lectures, at UNL in 2000. Since that time, I have changed from research in fundamental astronomy to developing methods that assist students in learning complex scientific principles and applying those principles to the students’ research interests. This project brought in roughly $50,000 USD in Student Fellowships, from NASA.
 

I look forwarding to bringing those experiences to TBS and having TBS students take their scientific interests in new and creative ways that I would never have imagined. It is my goal to establish creative research experiences for TBS students, which will enable them to excel in any university science department. 

 

My Polish wife is also a physicist and so we are happy to settle in her homeland, where we plan to raise our wonderful daughter. My hobbies include hiking with my family, biking, and playing most any sport, though I am not very good at them!
