I received my Ph.D. in physics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2000 where I studied atomic and molecular physics. I came to Oregon Tech in 2002 after a year of postdoctoral work at the University of Oklahoma. Having grown up in a small town in Wyoming, Klamath Falls is an ideal place for me. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my two children, hiking and playing guitar. My current research interests are in the theoretical study of electron, positron and positronium collisions with atoms, molecules and crystal surfaces.
