About Fiona

I am a Carnegie Mellon University graduate with a major in Physics and a minor in Math. I then continued on to get a Master's in Physics from UC Davis. While a graduate student at UC Davis, I worked as a teaching assistant in the physics department, leading discussion and lab sections of introductory physics courses.

I love that physics deals with the fundamentals of the world around us. I also enjoy the feeling when you solve a difficult problem, when things come together. I hope that I can play a part in helping you to achieve a better understanding.
