Tom Huber has a broad range of interests in physics, physics teaching, musical acoustics, and issues of science and society.
Tom received his Ph.D. from the University of Wyoming in 1989; his thesis experiment was a search for mixing of muonium to antimuonium. This was an experiment that was performed at the TRIUMF accelerator in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. After joining the Gustavus faculty in 1989, he continued to collaborate with a group at TRIUMF studying muon-catalyzed fusion. He received two National Science Foundation grants, two grants from Research Corporation to enable Gustavus students to participate in this project.
Starting in about 2000, he shifted his primary research focus from nuclear physics to acoustics. He worked with Charles Hendrickson, president of the Hendrickson Organ company, in a study of the vibration of reeds in reed organ pipes.
B.S. St. John's, 1983; Ph.D. Wyoming, 1989
