Professor George H. Watson, Associate Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, joined the faculty in 1987 after completing doctoral work at the University of Delaware and postdoctoral work at AT&T Bell Laboratories. His research interests are in experimental condensed matter physics and laser spectroscopy, currently in the area of photonic band structure. This research has included numerous undergraduate students. In the classroom, he is currently exploring web-based delivery of instructional materials for development of science and technology literacy among non-science majors in a course known as "Silicon, Circuits, and the Digital Revolution." He is also working with a team of faculty in promoting and integrating PBL activities throughout campus in a project funded through the NSF program on Institution-Wide Reform of Undergraduate Education, "Catalysts for Change: Foundation Courses and Instructional Innovation."
