Course Instructors

Andy Brown Instructor

After graduating from MIT in 2009, Andy spent two years teaching, traveling around the world, and biking across the United States. When he heard about Udacity, he abandoned his vagabond ways to share his passion for Physics and teaching with tens of thousands of incredible Udacity students.

Jonathan Burket Assistant Instructor

When not coming up with fiendishly clever physics problems, Jonathan daydreams about going into space. A student at University of Virginia, he tries to protect people on the internet with his research in computer security. He also enjoys collecting giraffe figurines, watching German soccer, and singing in the shower.
