  • I'm excited to be part of the team here at Northwest High, teaching Physics.  I hold an undergraduate degree and Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Durham, UK, then moved to UCLA to work as a post-doctoral research assistant in the department of materials science and engineering.  I've taught Community College, private high school and most recently have been at Northern Guilford High School for five years, where I was the 2017-2018 teacher of the year.
