Current Projects

TeachSpin:  In 1998, I retired from the University to concentrate on an avocation that had become a passion – designing and building reliable, affordable, hands-on apparatus to be used in upper division undergraduate laboratory courses.  My company, TeachSpin, is dedicated to creating instruments that will allow any institution, no matter what the areas of specialization of its faculty, to offer a wide range of seminal and current physics experiments.  

ALPhA:  I have also been involved as a board member and founding member in the creation of The Advanced Laboratory Physics Association (ALPhA) and have been involved in planning and mentoring the ALPhA Laboratory Immersions program.
