I enjoy teaching introductory science classes to non-science majors. I love telling the stories of how the Earth works, how solar systems like ours (and others) work, and the story of our universe's history.

How did people figure these things out, and how are they trying to learn more? These are some of the questions that I most enjoy exploring with my students.
