Dan earned his Ph.D. from the University of New Hampshire in 2014 where he focused on (a) identifying student difficulties with fluid dynamics and (b) revealing student reasoning by using resource graphs and in-the-moment productivity. After graduation, Dan spent 3 years at Gustavus Adolphus College (in St. Peter, Minnesota) in a teaching post-doc position where he developed a rigorous curriculum for their general physics course and had the chance to create a course of his own design (namely: how to win game shows using ideas from mathematics and physics). Since arriving at UNC-Chapel Hill, Dan has been learning how to effectively run large lecture sections and has been helping modify the studio activities that are part of the introductory physics for the life sciences course. He is thrilled to be a part of the PAER group on campus and hopes that he can both continue his research into fluids with his new colleagues and update his course on games shows so that it can eventually become a part of the UNC curriculum.
