Associate Professor of Physics

Glynn E. Bricker, Ph.D.


I am currently an associate professor of physics on the Westville campus. I teach both algebra and calculus based physics and astronomy courses for a variety of science majors.

Research Overview

Application of stable and radionuclides to problems in cosmo-chronology and early solar system processes through solar wind modeling and meteorite studies.

I like to hike the Dunes and play guitar (not at the same time).
