Gibbons-BrownAssociate Professor, Engineering, Physics
Michael Gibbons has always had a drive to understand how things work, but each question
lead to another question, eventually leading to the lowest level of understanding
in the world of physics. He’s still the little kid who can’t stop asking “why.”
He has only taught in traditional classrooms and enjoys the one-on-one interaction
with the students. But he thinks online courses open the material to a wider range
of students who, due to time and distance, can’t attend the traditional setting.
He plays guitar and sings. His hidden talent is that he is a juggler. He feels that
widespread education is the key to solving most of the problems in the world.
