Biography

Arlinda Hill received both her Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in physics from Arizona State University. Her doctorate research focused on experimental condensed matter physics, more specifically the study of structural, electrical, and thermodynamic properties of semiconductor materials and their relationship to device performance for solid state lighting applications. For her Master's degree thesis she investigated the effectiveness of research-informed physics teaching strategies introduced in a large enrollment introductory physics class. In her current position at ASU, she shares her passion and knowledge of physics through teaching introductory physics courses. She is committed to enhancing physics education by promoting and implementing physics teaching techniques and strategies for a better student-centered learning environment. She has collaborated with CRESMET (Center for Research on Education in Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology) and ACEPT (Arizona Collaborative for Excellence in the Preparation of Teachers), two NSF funded programs dedicated to high-quality teaching and learning of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology. As a member of the Association for Women in Science, she also is a strong advocate and works toward inclusion and participation of women in STEM fields, specially those in physics.
