Hello and welcome to my blog! I teach and do research in physics at Trinity Western University. Plus I coordinate all aspects of our physics program, our engineering transfer program, and am often involved in the Christian worldview course for final-year natural science majors as well as in hosting guest speakers in science & Christianity.
I hope you enjoy reading my reflections relative to my work. My blog has and will feature my thoughts on science & Christianity, physics & philosophy, phase transitions & emergence, academic life, science & culture, etc. I look forward to the opportunity of meeting future students if (make that "when"!) you visit our campus.
