Research History and Current Interests

Previous Research:

  1. Pulsar radio astronomy, including pulsar searches and discovery of the binary pulsar PSR1913+16
  2. Computer modelling of transport and atomic processes in magnetically confined controlled thermonuclear fusion plasmas

Current Interests include:

  1. Science Education, with a special focus on science museums and "informal" science education, Project based learning systems, and other approaches to integrated STEM learning
  2. Science policy & the interdisciplinary advancement of science and technology
Computer Modelling Environments
Computer modeling software systems addressing user interface and code development issues for large scale scientific computing.

K-12 Science Education
Investigations into the use of computer modeling, computer-instrumented hands-on experiments, and other approaches to improved K-12 science and technology education.

Contact Science
The goal of the Contact Science program is to deliveer hands-on  science to local communities using small-scale traveling science exhibits hosted by public libraries. This approach to informal science education takes advantage of the broad socio-economic access afforded by libraries to provide an ongoing, readily accessible science education presence within a highly diverse range of communities. Associated books, group activities, take-home projects and mentoring will support and extend the exhibit program. Successful prototyping in our local community library has the program poised to expand to regional, and ultimately, national scope.
