Ranjeet Tate's Classroom
Director of Studies
I focus on helping students understand the fundamentals of physics and machine learning using applied mathematics and critical thinking.
In undergraduate teaching, I was very influenced by Eric Mazur's "Peer Instruction", in which I learned how to approach teaching as a guide to someone's learning without getting in the way.
My doctoral dissertation was on mathematical aspects of Quantum Gravity, with post-doctoral work on General Relativity. I've also done experimental work on polymer films.
For the last seven years, I have been working as a Data Scientist, getting at business actionable insights by understanding data.
And yeah, I rescued a climber in the High Sierra last summer.
