Physics & Astronomy
Ron has been the Physics Lab Coordinator since July 1999. His primary responsibility is to make sure instructors have everything they need, when they need it, to perform labs and demonstrations in our introductory physics courses. Before coming to Rowan he was a senior research physicist with DuPont and prior to that a (civilian) senior physicist for the U.S. Navy. Ron completed all but the dissertation in Penn's doctoral program in physics, and holds an MA (Temple 1973) and BA (Rutgers 1969), both in physics. His interests include physics education research, cosmology and environmental issues. Ron has often taught our Physics of Everyday Life course.
