Brad Moser develops new curriculum for Introductory Physics for Life Science courses and helps to disseminate the work of the Physics Education Research community with his podcast called Physics Alive. He advocates for active learning and research-backed teaching practices. Before joining Hamilton in 2019, Moser taught for eight years as an associate lecturer at the University of New England and one year as a high school teacher at Deerfield Academy. He earned his doctorate at the University of Connecticut in atomic, molecular, and optical physics.
