Personal Summary

My name is Alex Bulmahn and I am a Lecturer in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Montana.  I arrived in Missoula in the fall of 2010 after completing my doctorate in the area of particle phenomenology at the University of Iowa.  During my time at the Univeristy of Montana I have taught classes in introductory physics and astronomy, classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, elementary particle physics, general relativity, and instructed introductory physics and astronomy laboratories
