I'm a professor in, and chair of, the Physics and Astronomy Department at Swarthmore College. My research interest, broadly speaking, is astrobiology, the study of the origin and distribution of life in the cosmos. This page gives a short introduction to what I do.

Increasingly, I've been using Blackboard or Moodle as the course web page for courses I'm teaching.  One downside of that is the difficulty of linking to those courses so that people other than the students can see what I'm doing.  Below are links to a few course pages that should be accessible (though in some cases they link to more recent iterations of the courses, taught by other people).
