Intro to Error Analysis
A writeup meant to be an introduction to the often confusing realm of error analysis.

Set and Logic Theory
This writeup provides a brief overview of the basic aspects of sets and their associated notation.

The Lagrangian
Ever wondered why the Lagrangian is L=T-U? I did, here is a paper about the ethereal functional from classical mechanics.

The Wave Equation
An introduction to solving the wave equation (in one dimension) and boundary conditions for partial differential equations.

Distribution Theory
An introduction to the theory of distributions, starting from common proofs and extending to multivariable applications.

History of Labs
A Capstone project for UT's EDC 385G on the history and condition of introductory teaching laboratories.

Other Projects

MiDataLabs

MiDataLabs helps advance public data literacy, encourage civic engagement, and promote informed decision-making.

Dissertation

A link to my PhD thesis studying the relationship between school demographics and aggregate standardized test performance.

Microrheology

During the Summer of 2012, I worked with another PhD student on calculating the viscosity of cytoplasm in a fruit fly embryo.

Equivalent Resistance

An example of calculating the equivalent resistance for an infinite array of resistors. The result here is really cool.

Solar Sails

Wrote a paper on solar sails for my final project in undergrad electromagnetism. Staying under the three page limit was tough.

Stress Tensor

A calculation of the electromagnetic stress-energy tensor (and thus the energy and momentum density) for special relativity. (W.I.P.)

Bob

I wrote a short story about a man who is tormented by Maxwell's demon in his dreams, and it begins to impact his life

Relaxation Method

I wrote a few programs that calculate the electric potential for different boundary conditions, for rectangular and polar coordinates.

Normal Modes

A calculation of some normal modes for coupled oscillations in a linear system of four masses connected by five springs.

Test Score Flow

My poster from the 2015 AAPT Summer meeting.

School Clustering

My poster from the 2017 AAPT Summer meeting.
