I have diverse scientific interests, and these interests are reflected in the breadth of the courses that I teach. Currently, all the courses I am actively teaching are offered at Pratt, and are thus aimed at non-majors. However, I recognize that Pratt students come with a great variety of scientific backgrounds and curiosities, and I have tried to create “different courses for different people”. For this reason it is a really good idea to peruse the course pages linked below to determine what course best fits your interests, skills, and motivation. If you have any questions about my courses, feel free to contact me.
I am planning to offer courses for majors at other higher educational institutions in the New York City area, but currently no such courses are formally planned.
Below is a list of all my courses. You can click on the course name to access a detailed description of each course.

Courses come and courses go. The needs of students and their academic programs fluctuate, general education requirements change, my interest in particular topics wanes and waxes, and what works at one educational institution is not necessarily what will work at another. Below is my “graveyard” of courses that I no longer offer. Some are likely gone for good, some may be periodically resurrected, and others may donate parts to a new course, but they are all — in the present — undeniably dead.
