Who Am I?
Hello, My name is Jared
Workman and my wife (Jen) and I,
along with our three cats and our four macaws,
live in Grand Junction,
I was born,
August 17th, 1976 in Albuquerque, New Mexico but lived in the
Philadelphia area of
Pennsylvania from 6 years old until I was 26. I spent seven years in
Boulder during the course of my graduate work then briefly lived in
Ogden, New York while working at the University of Rochester.
I hold a BA in Psychology, a BS in
Physics, a Masters in Astrophysics, and received my my PhD in
Theoretical Astophysics on April 5th, 2010 from the University of
Colorado at Boulder. I spent one year as a post-doctoral
researcher at the University of Rochester where I worked on MHD and
Particle in Cell (PIC) simulations of shocks in the solar
atmosphere. As of August, 2011 I moved to Grand Junction Colorado
to take a position as an assistant professor of Phyics at Colorado Mesa
University. My research focus is primarily in computational
astrophysics using MHD and PIC codes.
I created this site to act primarily as a personal journal and to keep old friends and family abreast of my doings. Please feel free to use any of the information contained herein however I ask permission be requested before any of my photographs are used.
My life is pretty much focused around my wife, my pets, my love of
animals and nature, learning, astronomy, mountain, rock, snow, and ice climbing.
