Computational Methods for Nonlinear Systems

In 2004, Jim Sethna and I started developing a new hands-on computational science lab course to support the Cornell IGERT program in nonlinear systems. This involved developing a wide variety of computational course modules that enabled students to work autonomously on problems of interest from physics, biology, engineering, and applied mathematics, developing skills in programming, numerical analysis, algorithm development, simulation, data analysis, visualization, and software design. Many of the exercises were folded into Jim's statistical mechanics textbook. I taught the course from 2004-2008, and will be teaching it again in Fall 2014.

Dynamics of Infectious Diseases

In 2010, I taught a four-week course module on the dynamics of infectious diseases as part of Basic Training in Condensed Matter Physics (Phys 7654).
