SPRING 2016: PHYS 520 Graduate Level Electromagnetic Theory (electromagnetic wave phenomena)
Summer 2012: REU Project
Theoretical soft-condensed matter physics. The relation between
structure, dynamics, and driving mechanisms in ordered and disordered
particulate media. Computer modelling of super-cooled liquids and
glasses, colloidal suspensions, foams, and granular matter.
Several times a year SIU puts on an Open House event, where prospective
students come and talk with departmental representatives. Here is the
Department of Physics Open House presentation. It gives an overview of what
physics is about, applications of physics, and potential employment with a physics
degree. There is also a section summarizing the faculty in the department. Some
simulation movies too, if you can view them.
If you have any questions about enrolling in the Department of Physics please contact myself, the Chair,
or the administrative staff here in Physics.
