M. Perry Nerem comes to ODU after attending graduate school at William and Mary and receiving an M.S. in Physics. He is currently working towards his doctorate while teaching introductory physics courses and participating in physics outreach events.
M.S. in Physics, College of William & Mary, (2014)
Using semiclassical techniques to study dynamical consequences of Hamiltonian systems with non-trivial monodromy. Current research is theoretical framework of an optical apparatus that exhibits Hamiltonian monodromy. These methods give classical insights into quantum mechanics phenomenon.
