I'm an astrophysics undergraduate specializing in cosmology, particularly large-scale cosmological structures as well as the evolution of the universe itself over large timescales. Research projects I have been involved in include:

- Optimization of Ammonium Ferric Citrate Gelatin for Laboratory Use
(with authors John E. Sinko and Travis Hislop, 2013)

- Assessment of a Spherical Star Sail Concept for Interstellar Transit
(Paper can be found at: http://tinyurl.com/SolarSailAssessment, 2014-2015)

- Laser Astronaut Retrieval/Propellant Development

I also tutor undergraduate-level physics, calculus, and astronomy through the website chegg.com. My profile there can be found by clicking the 'visit my website' button located at the top this page.

Additionally, I have uploaded a few hundred solutions to the textbook-helper website Slader.com. My username there is 'ThalesofMiletus', and you can find many of my solutions available for James Stewart's Single Variable Calculus: Early Transcendentals 7th edition, Sears & Zemansky's University Physics with Modern Physics 13th/14th Edition by Young and Freedman, and Modern Physics for Scientists and Engineers by Thornton and Rex.

Educating on these topics is something I highly enjoy, especially when it comes to learning new concepts myself from more qualified colleagues and professors. I have given the following presentations:

- Geometric and Physical Interpretation of Fractional-Order Integration and Differentiation
(Saint Cloud State University, 2015)

- The Universe in a Nutshell: Origins and Overview of Modern Cosmology
(SCSU Secular Student Alliance, October 2013)

.. and always look forward to sharing what I've learned with those who wish to know more.
