Martin, Stephen

Stephen Martin is a graduate student in the Physics department at the University of California, Santa Cruz. His research interests include theoretical and computational soft condensed matter physics and biophysics. Most recently, his work has been the simulation of a proposed solar energy conversion device which mimics the mechanism of chemical energy conversion in muscle tissue. An educator for the past 9 years, Stephen is participating in the PDP in order to learn and refine strategies for improved classroom participation and learner engagement.
