About the Author

Dr. Lawrence (Mick) Davis is an Associate Professor of Science at Umpqua Community College (UCC) in Roseburg, OR where he teaches General Physical Science, General Physics, General Physics with Calculus, and Water Resource Science.  In his spare time Mick enjoys alpine climbing, volunteering with Eugene Mountain Rescue, working with UCC’s wrestling teams (men and women), participating in outreach activities such as STEAMHub, and now writing OER textbooks. Mick’s interests in STEM education and in body physics were both sparked by his time at Pacific University where he earned a B.S. in Physics and a top-10 national ranking in wrestling. Mick’s body physics interest continued through graduate school at the University of Oregon (UO) where he earned a Ph.D. in physics and traded wrestling for climbing as an excuse to get out of the lab. Mick’s research focused on the growth, morphology, and optical properties of metallic nanostructures, but he also worked on a collaborative project with the Oregon Institute of Neuroscience and started a consulting company to fulfill a local industry need for physical modeling of stream temperature. The UO is also where Mick met his wife Liz, who is an R.N. and clinical instructor  for the Nursing Program at UCC. Raising their two young children has reduced time spent climbing, but provided a whole new source of interest in both neuroscience and the physics of the human body.
