Our faculty believe strongly in direct interaction with students, and many of our students develop lasting relationships with faculty that continue well beyond the four years spent at the college. This close link between students and faculty is one of the distinct advantages of an education at a small, liberal arts college like Saint Anselm.

Prof. Durham

Ian T. Durham, Ph.D. (chair)

I consider myself to be a mathematical physicist. That is, I apply mathematical concepts to physical problems. I am particularly interested in foundational issues, notably those in quantum mechanics and quantum information, but also in statistical mechanics, cosmology, quantum gravity, and particle physics.

Prof. Guerra

David V. Guerra, Ph.D.

As a graduate student and National Research Council (NRC) postdoctoral researcher, I developed laser systems for atmospheric sensing, in the photonics group at NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). For the past two decades, I have worked with a group from NASA-GSFC's Laboratory for Atmospheres on the development of a novel lidar (laser radar) system that employs a hologram of a point source as its receiver and scan mirror. Currently, I am working on data analysis algorithms for this lidar system.

Prof. Gugliucci

Nicole Gugliucci, Ph.D.

I seek to blend teaching and research as we investigate better ways to teach the physical sciences and bring students into research projects from an early stage.

Prof. Schnick

Jeffrey W. Schnick, Ph.D.

My background is in elementary particle physics. My most recent directed research projects carried out by students involved the study of buoyancy and acoustics respectively. I have developed a significant set of course materials for the Classical Physics sequence.

Prof. Shartzer

Kathleen G. Shartzer

B.S., Electrical Engineering, 1984, University of Lowell.
