TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Student Teaching

As a graduate student I had some experience in teaching and supervising students.

I supervised two students in the construction of a hodoscope detector for use at TJNAF (Thomas Jefferson Nuclear Acceleration Facility). This supervision required instruction on how to build and test delicate materials and instruments used. The work of the students was supervised and critiqued to assure quality control in the hodoscope, as well as to develop the technical skills of the students.

I also taught undergraduate laboratorys, which helped, develop basic experimental skills and reinforce material taught in their physics classes.

Professional Teaching

I started teaching regularly in the Fall of 1996 at the UNCP (University of North Carolina Pembroke.) UNCP is primarily a teaching university. Most of my time and effort is spent teaching classes related to physics and other science classes.

In the May of 2001 I received the UNCP Teaching Award, presented to faculty who demonstrate outstanding teaching.

RESEARCH EXPERIENCE

From 1989 to 1991, I worked on the study of plasma sprayed Zinc Ferrite compounds. Mòssbauer transmission spectroscopy and X-ray diffractometry were used to analyze these compounds. Annealing experiments were carried out to further understand how the properties of the compounds could be modified in relationship to their ability to absorb electromagnetic radiation.

From 1991 to 1995, I worked on the Large Acceptance Detector System ( LADS) project. This experiment was carried out at the Paul Sherrer Institut, in Villigen, Switzerland. This experiment studied the process of pion absorption on light and heavy nuclei with pion beam energies from 80 MeV to 240 MeV. There were three separate data runs with the LADS detector. A short test run in 1989, a full run in 1991 and a third in 1993. I participated in the testing of equipment and collection of data in the '91 and '93 runs. My duties included testing of the LADS wire chambers and the wiring of sophisticated signal processing equipment.

I have analyzed the PPD final state resulting from pion absorption on 4He, from the 1991 run, on a VAX-4000 DEC station. The analysis required filtering and normalizing the data for specific reaction channels. The normalized data was then studied to isolate specific mechanisms responsible for the final state seen. Monte Carlo simulations of the detector's response to absorption events were carried out. Also, numerical integration calculations of the deuteron momentum distribution in 4He were carried out to help model aspects of the data.

I have participated on two other experiments at PSI, conducted by the nuclear physics group at the University of Maryland at College Park. These experiments studied pion absorption on a polarized Lithium target with the single arm SUSI spectrometer.

I was also involved in the design and construction of the Hall C hodoscope at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (TJNAF), in Newport News, Virginia.

I also assisted with the instrumentation of the Hall B, Region II drift chambers for the CLAS detector at TJNAF.

My research work at UNCP has been confined primarily to student research projects.

Most recently I have supervised students in researching novel designs for inexpensive radiation detectors as part of an NSF-REU grant program. This research was carried out from the summers of 2004, 2005 and 2006. Results from this research were disseminated at conferences listed in the presentation section.
