Teaching Interests

I teach a range of physics courses, focusing on astrophysics, modern physics, and astronomy. I have particular interest in tools and techniques related to computational physics and astronomy.


Current students can find links to my courses on eWeber (Canvas)

Research Interests

My primary research focus is working with the Virtual Planetary Laboratory to help characterize the properties of planets around other stars. In addition, I analyze data from several Mars missions to explore the history of the Martian climate. I am also interested in problems related to high performance computing and visualization.
