This academic year I am teaching the undergraduate course ELEC1011: Circuit Analysis & Synthesis I. I have previously taught the undergraduate course Solid State Physics (PHYS3080) and postgraduate course Advanced Semiconductor Devices (ELEC9501) at University of New South Wales, Australia. I have also developed new undergraduate laboratory experiments i.e. Studying the kinetics of graphite oxidation using a STM - An undergraduate laboratory experiment, N.J.
