Caitlin joined the Hastings College faculty in 2015 and loves being at a small, liberal arts college. She comes from the east coast, where she received her B.S. in physics from Grove City College in Pennsylvania, received her Ph.D. in physics from the University of Maryland, and taught for two years at Washington and Lee University in Virginia.
Currently, she teaches College Physics and Electricity & Magnetism.
Caitlin's research interests include optics and optoelectronics, optical communication, and experimental chaos and synchronization.
Caitlin is also a lover of the arts and has been making music and dancing for most of her life. If you visit her office, you will likely find her drinking green tea and listening to Latin music (both the sacred chant kind and the salsa dancing kind).
