Dr. Doug Barlow, a Florida native, earned his BS degree in physics from the University of Florida, a Masters in physics from Pittsburg State University, and a Masters and PhD in materials science from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Doug has more than 20 years of experience teaching college courses in the physical sciences. These include general physics, general chemistry, electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, physical chemistry, and the physics of sound. Dr. Barlow maintains an active research program in theoretical chemical physics and condensed matter physics. Areas of interest include crystal nucleation and growth, phase transitions, critical phenomena and the thermal properties of alloys. Dr. Barlow has authored more than 20 peer-reviewed publications in journals such as Physical Review B, Physical Review E, Journal of Crystal Growth , and the International Journal of Thermophysics. Dr. Barlow is the author of the text: Introduction to Physics with Calculus, and is in the process of writing a textbook on electromagnetics. Since January 2023, Dr. Barlow has served at Sewanee where he teaches the calculus-based physics sequence along with intermediate electromagnetics and quantum mechanics.
