Kevin Graves

A Physics instructor with a M.S. in Physics from SDSU and a B.S. from Fort Lewis College. My thesis focused on optimizing noise and signal processing for instrumentation. I'm a fan of all things dorky: willing to discuss Atium Economics, why Petyr Baelish was the most influential character of his time, and why Bridge 4 is the proper way of life. I'm also an avid Dodgers fan, and am humbly decent at skiing.
