Eric Raymer joined the Columbia University Physics Department in 2023 as a Lecturer in Discipline. He earned his B.S. in physics at Minnesota State University, followed by a Ph.D. in physics from North Carolina State University, where he worked with supercomputer simulations of astrophysical accretion in binary stars. His work in physics education includes designing and teaching undergraduate core curriculum science courses (Frontiers of Science at Columbia and Scientific Inquiry at St. John's University), developing educational technology to support in-person instruction, and teaching physics in early undergraduate courses as well as in grades 6-12.
Eric's work in physics education focuses on physics pedagogy, science literacy, inclusive teaching, and innovative use of technology in the classroom.
