Kasey Wagoner

Assistant Teaching Professor

Room 304


Most of Kasey’s efforts are focused on the courses he teaches. But he also participates in many different physics-related activities and research. If you’re interested in working together on a topic in any of these areas, please email him. If you’re a student inquiring about working together, please tell him: 1. who you are (e.g. “I’m a second year civil-engineering major”); 2. what physics courses you’ve taken; 3. why you’re interested in connecting (e.g. “I want to do a baseball physics research project because….”).

  • Cosmic Microwave Background: Kasey works with multiple collaborations that measure the CMB, the oldest light in the universe. His role there primarily revolves around education and public outreach efforts. He commonly has projects that are instructive and interesting for undergraduate students.
  • Baseball Physics: The game of baseball has many interesting applications of physics. Kasey does research projects, classroom activities, and public outreach in this area and routinely has research projects that are appropriate for undergraduate (and potentially graduate) students.
  • Simons-NSBP Scholars Program: Since its inception in 2020, Kasey has been the Director of the Simons-NSBP Scholars Program, a unique summer research program for undergraduate members of the NSBP. There are many ways for physicists of all ilks to participate in the program.
