Todd G. Ruskell is a Teaching Professor in Physics at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) in Golden, CO.
Dr. Ruskell earned a B.A. in Physics at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI, and did his doctoral research on scanning probe microscopy techniques at the University of Arizona. After two years of post-doctoral research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, he joined the faculty at CSM in 1999. Dr. Ruskell specializes in teaching the introductory physics sequence. He was one of the early adopters of both on-line homework and personal response systems and continues to refine his use of both technologies. He was also instrumental in developing the curriculum used in the Physics Studio, where introductory physics is taught to all students at CSM.
