Meet Our Physics Faculty Furman University

Our faculty specialize in everything from plasma physics technology, to optics and  astrophysics. But even though their background and expertise run the gamut, our instructors share one thing in common: they're outstanding teachers.

At Furman, it's easy to engage our faculty inside and outside of the classroom. That's a good thing because interaction is essential to understanding the underlying concepts of physics. Whether you're researching with us or seeking extra help on a difficult assignment, we're here to ensure your success.
