Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi! Welcome to my bio. I love all things about the universe, and enjoy using both math and words to tell its story. Through my study of physics and economics, I love finding intersections between fields, and enjoy using one field to explain another. In my free time, I love to read, watch movies, eat, and listen (and play!) music. Looking forward to meeting you all!

S4712: What's So Special About Relativity? in Splash Spring 2023 (Apr. 01, 2023)
Have you ever looked at Einstein's work and thought, "big deal!" This course explores what, really, the big deal is with relativity. From correcting Newton's mistakes to predicting the progression of the universe, Einstein's theories of relativity redirected the course of physics into exciting new directions. There will be some math, but not at a more advanced level than algebra, and it will all be explained in detail. Building on a few key principles, we will develop an intuitive understanding of relativity, and hopefully change the way you look at the universe.
