    Personal profile

    Research interests

    Research Expertise:
    Cometary atmospheres | Infrared spectroscopy | Physics education

    I also am the Principal Investigator for the PhysTEC comprehensive site award to Rowan University. The goals of Rowan’s PhysTEC work is to recruit, retain, and train future high school physics teachers. As Dean, I continue my work leading the PhysTEC grant and also am committed to evidence-based instruction in math and science.

    Prior to becoming the Dean, my research field in planetary sciences was supported by the National Science Foundation’s Research at Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) program and NASA’s Planetary Astronomy program for 13 years. I collaborated with scientists at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. This collaboration involved the composition and behavior of comets by observing the infrared emission of cometary molecules. The telescopes for these investigations were the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility and the W.M. Keck telescope, both atop of Mauna Kea (14,000 ft) on the Big Island of Hawaii.
