Kris Liu | Educator Fellow
The Organization for Physics at Two-Year Colleges (OPTYCs), American Association of Physics Teachers | College Park, MD

During her doctoral work in experimental condensed matter physics, Kris caught the teaching bug. Much of her career has been spent teaching introductory college-level physics at a two-year college, where she engaged students in a studio classroom. She now is the Director at The Organization of Physics at Two-Year Colleges and spends most of her time running professional development for two-year college and high school physics teachers. She is actively working to reinvigorate physics curriculum and hopes to use polar science as a way to do this.
