3. Undergraduate & Graduate STEM Education Reform

I'm always interested in encouraging more people—young and old—to study science and technology, and my lab regularly employs many undergraduate students. Also, I’m the Director of LabEscape, an outreach project of the Physics department and the world’s first science-based escape room, as described here.
