Desiré Whitmore

I am the Sr. Physics Educator at the Exploratorium in San Francisco– the museum of science, art, and human perception. My PhD is in Chemical and Material Physics, and I am known as the Laserchick! Before becoming an educator, I was an ultrafast spectroscopist designing and building femtosecond (10^-15 s) and attosecond (10^-18 s) laser systems for time-resolved measurements of nano-materials. I currently teach middle and high school teachers how to teach science in very engaging and inquiry-rich ways.
