My brother said I should write a blog about what I do at my job. I am a Research Assistant Professor in the field of plasma physics, currently focused primarily on magnetospheric physics. What? Well, maybe I can use this blog to help explain some of that, plus what it's like to be a scientist. I'm also a mom of two boys, currently 5 and 2 1/2. I hope to also write about the joys and challenges of doing all this! I had originally planned to call this blog "Physics Mom," but that was already taken (both physicsmom and physics-mom) so I know I'm not alone!

  1. I can't wait to actually learn what it is you do! maybe you could start by telling us a little background like how you got into physics. who was your first influential teacher that got you fired up about math?
