Some things are classic; some things are just old.

Unfortunately, this page is "just old". I do plan on updating it (and the whole site) one of these days, but it may not be for a while. In the meanwhile, why not check out my LinkedIn profile? Unlike this page, it's usually current (or just about).
Professional home page of R. Carey Woodward, Jr.
I am an experienced and enthusiastic teacher. I am currently an
assistant professor of physics/astronomy at the University of Wisconsin--Fond du Lac. In the past,
I have taught undergraduate physics, astronomy, and engineering at
Madison Area Technical College, and
the Fox Valley,
Washington County, and
Waukesha County campuses of the
of Wisconsin, as well as
math and computer science in K-12 summer courses (plus one adult class)
at Collegiate School and the
Ulysses S. Grant Foundation
of Yale University. Other past teaching-related
activities include tutoring of at-risk undergraduates in UW--Madison's Physics Learning Program,
numerous teaching assistantships at
Yale and UW--Madison,
and physics and astronomy classes at Grandparent's University (a summer youth program at UW--Fox Valley).
I am also a part-time research astronomer, experienced largely in observational
work--imaging and spectroscopy (long-slit and Fabry-Perot) in the
near-infrared through ultraviolet--with a heavy
dose of computer work.
Although I have been involved with studies of comets, the geocorona,
and cataclysmic variables,
my main research interest is the
Io Plasma Torus--a ring of ions (mostly sulfur and oxygen)
surrounding the planet
the orbit of its moon
Io--and Io itself.
The past few summers I have been engaged in computer-based geocoronal research with the Space Physics group at the
University of Wisconsin--Madison.
