Kathryn McGill



Ph.D. Cornell University (2018)

Office: 2112 NPB


Currently I teach both in-person and online algebra-based mechanics, mainly serving the pre-health student population. I also run the UF Physics TA Training program.


I am currently serving as a Physics Undergraduate Advisor. (Please contact advising@phys.ufl.edu with any advising questions.)


I oversee the outreach project UF PhysTube, a collaboration of students, faculty, and staff to make online videos about any- and everything related to physics. (www.youtube.com/ufphysics)
