Eric J. Raymer, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor
Institute for Core Studies
Ph.D., North Carolina State University

Dr. Raymer comes to St. John's University as an Assistant Professor in the ICS/Scientific Inquiry department.  He earned his Ph.D. in physics at North Carolina State University, where he worked with the astrophysics research group.  Following the completion of his doctorate, he joined Columbia University as a postdoctoral fellow, where he taught the science literacy course, Frontiers of Science, and served as a lecturer in physics.  Dr. Raymer's research in astrophysics focuses on modeling interacting binary stars with large scale fluid dynamics simulations.  He is interested in how instabilities in the accretion flows etween stars may lead these systems to produce unique observational features.  His research interests in education include investigating how online adaptive learning technology can be used to differentiate instruction for diverse groups of learners.
