Katherine Goodman is currently a graduate student at the University of Colorado Boulder in the ATLAS Institute, working toward a Ph.D. in Technology, Media, and Society. Her research is in engineering education, with a focus on fluids and design courses. She holds a B.S. in mathematics and a masters of professional writing. She has previously worked as a technical writer and project coordinator, and as an instructor in composition at the University of Southern California and the Community College of Aurora.
Dr. Hertzberg is currently Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at CU-Boulder. She teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in measurement techniques, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, design and computer tools. She has pioneered a spectacular course on the art and physics of flow visualization, and is conducting research on the impact of the course with respect to visual perception and educational outcomes. Her disciplinary research centers around pulsatile, vortex dominated flows with applications in both combustion and bio-fluid dynamics. She is also interested in a variety of flow field measurement techniques. Current projects include electrospray atomization of jet fuel and velocity and vorticity in human cardiac ventricles and large vessels.
My research has focused on human memory since the early 1990s. This has included cognitive/behavioral studies, neuropsychological studies in brain-injured patients, positron emission tomography (PET), fMRI, MEG, as well as ERP. I have run my own ERP lab since 1995, and have been continuously funded to conduct ERP studies of recognition memory since 1997 (McDonnell-Pew Foundation: 1997-2001; NIMH/NIH: 2002-2012). Around 2000, I also began conducting ERP and behavioral research related to perceptual expertise. This work has been continuously funded since 2001 (McDonnell Foundation: 2001-2010; NSF: 2006-2016).
Noah Finkelstein is a Professor of Physics at the University of Colorado Boulder and conducts research is in physics education, specifically studying the conditions that support students’ interests and abilities in physics – developing models of context. He is a director of the Physics Education Research (PER) group and a Director of CU’s Center for STEM Learning. He is involved in education policy serving on many national boards, is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and named a Presidential Teaching Scholar for the University of Colorado system.
