I tell the students that I am Kevin W. Davies on my syllabus, mostly to not be confused with the other more-famous Kevin Davies that are out there (one works for ACS, another is a well-published biologist, and there's even a soccer player - none are me!) I have a long-standing fascination with the use of technology in science education, and how high/low tech approaches can either help or hinder the communication of scientific ideas. I am a heavy user of flipped classroom approaches in my courses, and in my classrooms I gravitate toward PxL methods (i.e. PLTL, POGIL...) I also have a bit of a fascination with data visualization. Over on the research side, I am an analytical chemist that is using the photoacoustic effect to measure how molecules partition absorbed energy into different photophysical outcomes, and m designing a toolbox of molecules that can exploit photoacoustics to permit remote sensing and chemical imaging.
