Areas of Expertise/Research Interests (List All Please)
I have always been interested in finding better ways of conveying the knowledge of physics to my students regardless of whether they are freshmen enrolled in elementary physics courses, or advanced undergraduate and graduate students trying to master any specific field of physics.
During my employment as sessional instructor I have acquired valuable experience in implementing this kind of approach in teaching large introductory-level courses covering the topics of mechanics, thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism, optics astronomy and astrophysics offered to freshmen entering physics and other sciences. I have also gained experience in teaching the intermediate-level courses on optics, waves and thermal radiation as well as electricity and magnetism offered for students entering engineering. I have acquired a significant experience in teaching senior courses of undergraduate classical mechanics, thermodynamics, statistical mechanics and mathematical physics. A have also some experience in teaching courses in the graduate level.
I have been active in the research working on improved didactics of teaching modern physics, special theory of relativity, solid state physics, quantum mechanics and advanced under-graduate optics and electrodynamics.
Learning and research is an important part of my scientific activity.
While teaching the introductory courses on astronomy and astrophysics I have significantly improved basic knowledge in some topics of geology, organic chemistry and molecular biology.
I have particular interests in the standard model of elementary particles and cosmology. I have also been interested in Exergy, a thermodynamic function of state that is used in the field of engineering thermodynamics.
My PhD thesis was done on the application of group theory and differential fiber bundles to some problems in physics.
