I have engaged in research into anti-hydrogen atoms with the aim of testing the symmetry of the antimatter and matter worlds, having spent a lot of time at CERN in Geneva in the process. Research has continued through studies of the more conventional helium atom to see if it can provide a platform to precisely evaluate physics theory. I am also interested in the field of curriculum development for undergraduate physics programs, and I particularly like to design modern, relevant and fun experiments for laboratory courses.
