I am an assistant professor in the Sciences and Mathematics Division of the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at UW Tacoma. In my research, my students and I use magnetic iron oxides to reconstruct past environments and to interpret changes in Earth’s magnetic field. I teach primarily physics and geoscience courses. Outside of academia, I am the dad of two awesome kids and am Dr. Bonnie Becker‘s husband. I also really, really like ice cream.
