What do you do?

I make interactive simulations for active learning about physical systems.

Why?

Static text and images - even movies, which always play the same way - are not always helpful when trying to learn about a complex system. "Hands on" with the actual system is not always possible for time, cost, and safety reasons. Interactive simulations can be very useful to people who want to understand complex systems.

What should we read?

"Thinking Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman
