Thesis Student Supervision

I have supervised the following students for PHY 4410U/4420U Physics Thesis Project I/II. In all cases except where noted, I was responsible for guiding the student towards a thesis topic (or giving one outright), setting the overall goals of the research, conducting regular meetings, and general supervision and guidance towards performing original research at the undergraduate level.

Summer Student Supervision

In summer 2013 I was awarded a Teaching Innovation Fund to design and build a series of first year physics lecture demonstrations. Part of the funds were used towards hiring a student for the summer to assist me (Elizabeth Selinger); I was also able to have a student employee through the University Summer Works program (Taylor O'Meara).

Supervision consisted of hands-on guidance of the students towards the final goal of having a set of demonstrations completed by the end of summer. The demonstrations are detailed here.
