Welcome

Rodney Michael I have been teaching at Ashland University since 1997. Before coming to Ashland University I taught at Gustavus Adolphus and Ohio University where I received my Ph.D. in Medium Energy Nuclear Physics (1995) Since then I have done research in Acoustics, Neutrino Physics, Nuclear Astrophysics, and gifted education. My current interest lies in education and developing a Physics Program here at Ashland University.
