I teach undergraduate courses in thermodynamics, statistical physics and biophysics, as well as first-year physics. If you are interested in taking one of my courses at the 3rd year level or higher but do not fullfill the pre-requisites, contact me to discuss your situation.

Undergraduate courses:

3050 poster PHYS 3050: Introduction to Biophysics
Given Winter 2019, 20.
Textbook: Rob Phillips et al. Physical Biology of the cell, 2nd edition.

We cover many topics in biophysics at the molecular and cellular length scales. I have included topics not typically not found in other undergraduate courses, such as polymer physics, the Poisson-Boltzmann equation, and depletion interactions. A major part of the course is a project, in which students work on a well-defined topic in biophysics. See the syllabus 2019 here.
