Richard N. Steinberg

Richard N. Steinberg is an Associate Professor in both the Department of Education and the Department of Physics at City College of New York. Richard received his B.S. degree in physics and mathematics from State University of New York at Binghamton. He then went to Yale University where he earned a M.S. degree in physics, a Ph.D. in applied physics and a secondary teaching certificate from the Yale Teacher Preparation Program. His doctoral research was in experimental solid state physics. After graduation, Richard joined the Physics Education Group at the University of Washington and then the Physics Education Research Group at the University of Maryland before joining City College. His activities have involved teaching (teachers, under-prepared minorities, pre-engineers, physicists), research in physics education, and curriculum and software development. His current interests include evaluating the effectiveness of technological teaching tools and development of a physics education research-based curriculum in modern physics / quantum mechanics.
