Dr. Lars Schweidenback got his undergraduate degree in Physics from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2007 where he did research in physics education research. He then went to SUNY Buffalo for his doctorate in physics which he received in 2013. His research there was on spintronics and electron spins in semi-conductors in high magnetic fields, especially quantum wells and quantum dots. Upon receiving his PhD he went to SUNY Delhi where he became a physics and chemistry instructor, teaching mostly through demonstrations. Dr. Lars is a lifelong nerd, obsessing over all things Marvel comics, video games, and Dungeons and Dragons.
