Dr. Stamm joined the faculty of UE in 2005 after obtaining a B.S. in Physics from the California Institute of Technology and a PhD in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Dr. Stamm has two main research interests in biophysics and plasma physics. He uses electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy of site-directed mutant proteins to elucidate structure-function relationships in membrane proteins. He also collaborates with NASA-Goddard to improve all aspects of plasma impedance measurements of the Earth’s ionosphere. Undergraduate projects have included simulations and fits of rocket data and pinpointing and eliminating probe circuitry error. Dr. Stamm teaches all levels of undergraduate physics including classes in biophysics, advanced lab and thermodynamics.
