Teaching: I teach the General Physics sequence, the Physics with Calculus sequence, and Modern Physics. I also teach Earth and Space Science and Astronomy. Research interest: My interest is in the ab initio calculation of electronic structures of small-to-medium-sized molecules. In particular, I am interested in examining topological aspects of the electron density that correspond to traditional chemical concepts such as bonding, ring and cage formation, atomic charges, and electronegativities.
