Dr. John Stamm

Associate Professor-Department Chair/Physics

Koch Center for Engineering and Science, Room 240

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.

Outside of the classroom, Dr. Stamm enjoys wallyball, Tae Kwon Do, reading SF/Fantasy, and playing board and card games of all sorts.

Dr. Jeffrey Braun


Koch Center for Engineering and Science, Room 236

Professor Braun received his PhD from Oklahoma State University in 1974, with a dissertation in relativistic quantum theory. Since joining the University of Evansville faculty in 1984, he has been studying the interaction between light and matter, leading research projects in photon correlation studies, holography, phase conjugation, and saturated absorption spectroscopy. Prof. Braun twice chaired the AAPT's national Committee on Undergraduate Education and UE's Faculty Senate. His Physics Study Guide, published by Addison-Wesley, is now in its 3rd Edition. He has given numerous presentations on his research and on various topics in undergraduate physics education.

When not in the classroom or lab, Dr. Braun is an active tennis player and official, having officiated numerous college and professional tennis matches, including the US Open.
