Biography

Art Pallone works to bring science closer to his students, the public, and researchers with talent who may have limited resources.

Pallone has taught for more than 15 years in public and private universities, beginning his career as a Davies Fellow with the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. During that time, Pallone worked with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory to better understand the performance of body armor. He went on to develop methods that improved the signal-to-noise ratio in ion beam analysis, to use multi-modal and multi-spectral imaging and image analysis in creative ways, and to build optical instruments with his students.

His passion for science is equaled only by his passion for teaching, inside the classroom and in experiential-learning opportunities outside the classroom. He mentors students on a regular basis and enjoys conducting public outreach events. Most recently his research has been published, with a student coauthor, in Physics Education.
