My focus is in undergraduate student success. I develop tools for, collect data on, and analyze statistics of undergraduate student success -- both at the department level and as part of the assessment team at TILT (The Institute for Learning and Teaching). At the department level, I develop advising and recruitment materials, and I advise undergraduate students on their transition to the major.

Emily Hardegree-Ullman / Assistant Professor and Director of the Madison-Macdonald Observatory
Phone: (970) 491-8265
Office: Engineering D213

My focus is on astronomy and physics education. I teach introductory courses and engage the community with public outreach events sponsored by the Madison-Macdonald Observatory.

Brian Jones / Master Instructor and Director of Little Shop of Physics
Phone: (970) 491-5131
Office: Engineering AR209

My focus is on education and outreach. The outreach activities I pursue through the Little Shop of Physics dovetail nicely with my formal education responsibilities. Figuring out how to design instructional experiences that engage and educate younger students teaches me and my team valuable lessons about how to best engage and educate students at Colorado State University.

Jacob Roberts / Professor and Department Chair
Phone: (970) 491-0578
Office: Engineering AR124

I have two areas of research interest. We are conducting experiments measuring fundamental plasma properties such as electron-ion collisions in strongly coupled and strongly magnetized ultracold plasmas. In a separate project, we are measuring the time-dependent absorption and birefringent response of atoms in an utracold gas to sudden laser illumination that occurs on timescales short compared to the atoms' response time.

James Sites / Professor
Phone: (970) 491-5850
Office: Engineering AR119

My research focus is on polycrystalline thin-film solar cells, primarily CdTe-based cells fabricated at CSU. Ares of particular interest are the relationship of electronic band structure to photovoltaic efficiency, the effect of defects at interfaces and grain boundaries, and the optics of multilayer solar cells.

Walter Toki / Professor

Robert Wilson / Professor
Phone: (970) 491-5033
Office: Engineering D205

My current research interest is experimental neutrino physics including a search for sterile neutrinos, which cannot be produced or detected by any interaction but only come into being through a quantum mixing phenomenon. I enjoy teaching and exploring new methodologies such as the use of electronic response systems in the classroom and tutorial style homework problems.

Mingzhong Wu / Professor
Phone: (970) 491-6312
Office: Engineering D9

Mingzhong Wu is interested in many topics in the field of magnetism and magnetic materials. His current research areas include ferromagnetic resonance, magnetic damping, spin-wave solitons, chaotic spin waves, spin pumping, spin-orbit torques, and topological insulators.
