Meeting with a faculty advisor

Students should prepare for a meeting with a faculty advisor by knowing their current schedule and their plans for the future. Students should bring an advising form, and should visit faculty advisors during their office hours.

Assignments by last name are intended for initial visits. Students are encouraged to work with the same faculty advisor over the course of their academic career, when feasible.

Note: During the summer, faculty advisors do not hold weekly office hours. Please email your faculty advisor for assistance.

Daniel Bolton

Instructor • EPEN Faculty Advisor (Student's Last Name: A-C)
Office Hours: Friday 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. • Office: DUAN F1033 • Research Interests My research is in the field of nuclear theory. My Ph.D. work applied Chiral Perturbation Theory to extract the up-down quark mass difference. My dissertation and the three papers I published along the way can be viewed online. More recently, my research interests lie in Lattice QCD. After working on charmed-baryon spectroscopy , I am currently...

Tobin Munsat

Professor • EPEN Faculty Advisor (Student's Last Name: D-G)
Office Hours: Monday 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. • Office: DUAN F827 • Research Interests: My research follows several lines of study, including fluctuation measurements in plasmas, the relationship of turbulent quantities to cross-field plasma transport, and the microphysics of dust impacts which drive the dusty plasma equilibria. My diagnostic work on larger devices consists of data analysis and velocimetry analysis from a number of tokamak diagnostic instruments. This work...

Michael Litos

Assistant Professor • EPEN Faculty Advisor (Student's Last Name: H-L)
Office Hours: Tuesday 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. and Wednesday 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. • Office: DUAN F819 Research Interests: Plasma, Lasers, and Beams Group: We conduct experimental research at the intersection of plasma, laser, and beam physics, with an emphasis on plasma wakefield acceleration. This research program combines local experiments at CU with collaborative work carried out at national laboratories.

Thomas Schibli

Associate Professor • EPEN Faculty Advisor (Student's Last Name: M-P) • Adjunct Fellow - JILA
Office Hours: Monday 3:15 p.m. - 4:45 p.m. or by appointment • Office: DUAN F527 • Research Interests: We strive to advance science and technology in the fields of optics and photonics through advanced functional materials, novel laser systems and measurement techniques. Light has played an important role during the development of many topics in modern physics. Atomic, molecular, optical (AMO) physics certainly relies strongly on steady developments in optics...

Charles Rogers

Professor • EPEN Faculty Advisor (Student's Last Name: Q-S)
Office Hours: Tuesday 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. or by appointment • Office: DUAN F631 • Research Interests: Our group works in the general area of experimental condensed matter physics of thin films and very small systems. Presently, the group is working on the nanoelectromechanical behavior of nanowires and fabricated electromechanical structures, buried interfaces in photovoltaic systems, and surface molecular dipole systems. Nanoscale objects are made with a combination of...

Heather Lewandowski

Associate Professor • Associate Chair - Engineering Physics • EPEN Faculty Advisor (Student's Last Name: T-Z)
Office Hours: Monday 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. • Office: JILA X435 • Research Interests: My group studies collisions and reactions of simple cold molecules. Our ultimate goal is to understand the quantum mechanical processes involved in making and breaking a chemical bond. We aim to control the reacting molecules external and internal degrees of freedom in the quantum regime. To accomplish this control, we slow down a supersonically cooled molecular...
