Teaching: 

 

I teach the online course PHYS1160 - Introduction to Astronomy and the Search for Life Elsewhere. This is a fully online course providing an introduction to astronomy and to the search for life elsewhere (astrobiology). It uses video lectures, discussion groups and online assignments. The presentation is largely non mathematical, and the course is suitable as an introductory level course for science students, and as a general education course for non-scientists.

I also teach PHYS1211 - Energy and Environmental Physics. This course covers the physics of energy and its application to environmental science. I teach the first part of this course covering mechanical and thermal energy, introductory thermodynamics, climate change, energy in biology and chemistry, and the origin, applications and problems of fossil fuels.
