APS Referee career award
I teach introductory physics courses (PY105, 106, 211, 212, 313) and serve as Faculty Director of the Physics Department. I negotiate who teaches what, and supervise course scheduling. I analyze departmental trends based on accumulated data, and deal with special projects regarding space, including grad student room assignments and renovation projects. I have been Chair of the Boston University Faculty Council (2001-3), as well as Dean Search Committees and the like. I was chair of the University Council Committee on Faculty Policies during the multi-year period that we conducted a major restructuring of faculty policies as expressed in the Faculty Handbook.
