Dr. Janice Guikema is an experimental physicist in condensed matter physics. She is also an experienced physics instructor in both traditional and online learning environments. Her research interests include nanoscale materials, scanning probe microscopy, superconductivity, and energy related materials. Most recently she has been working on a remarkable material called graphene in collaboration with the Marković group at Johns Hopkins as well as with scientists at JHU's Applied Physics Laboratory. Janice got her Ph.D. from Stanford, did a postdoc at Cornell, and taught physics at Texas A&M before moving to Baltimore. While at JHU she was a two-time recipient of the M. Hildred Blewett Fellowship from the American Physical Society.
