Dr. Doncheski

Dr. Michael Doncheski was appointed the Director of Academic Affairs in May 2011. He had previously been served as professor of physics at the campus since 1996. His primary areas of research include elementary particle theory (the study of particles and interactions in "atom smashers" such as Fermilab's Tevatron collider and CERN's Large Hadron Collider). He has also studied visualization of quantum mechanical phenomena. In addition, Dr. Doncheski is involved in the American Association of Physics Teachers. He gave presentations in 2006 and 2007 at the Central Pennsylvania Section’s annual meetings.
