Welcome to my home on the Web
Hi, I am a Professor in the Physics and Earth Science departments at SUNY Oswego. I teach a wide range of courses from Introductory Physics and Astronomy courses to Cosmology and General Relativity. If you need to contact me, use the link above. The links above will take you to my course web pages.
My main research interests center around stellar pulsation and evolution, cosmology, the extra-galactic distance scale. I am a theorist who has recently dabbled in data analysis and observations. My research is funded by NASA/HST, NSF and the American Astronomical Society. I have a number of collaborators in the US and abroad and work with quite a few undergraduates. If you are an undergraduate interested in working on a student project, dont hesitate to drop by and see me or email me. The links above will take you to my research pages.
