I am interested in interdisciplinary physics and fine arts education. I have a dual background in ethnic dance and physics, and recently completed a PhD in Education. My dissertation title is Symmetry and Aesthetics in Introductory Physics: An Experiment in Interdisciplinary Physics and Fine Arts Education. I teach a course through the College of Creative Studies on Aesthetics and Physics. I adore animals, and I believe in collaboration. I have not heard of interspecies collaboration before, but I am fascinated and intrigued by this idea. I would love to learn more.
