Presently I teach ASTR1210: Introduction to the Sky & Solar System at UVa.

This class provides an overview of how we view the night sky, how this view has evolved since ancient times, and a modern view of the stars including our exploration of the Solar System.

I have offered this class in Spring 2019, Fall 2019, Spring 2020, Fall 2020, and Spring 2021 (current).

I will soon be teaching a new course at the University of Virginia, ASTR3510: The Interstellar Medium: From Hydrogen to Humans.

This course provides an overview of the origins of the elements through cosmic history. The course will be taught chronologically, starting from the Big Bang and leading up to life as we know it. The course will cover a wide variety of topics, such as the formation of the first stars, galaxies, and the lifecycle of the interstellar medium. We will also study how material is re-incorporated into modern day stars, planets, and eventually life.
