Alejandro Satz

Assistant Professor Physics


Originally from Argentina, I first came to the US in 2011 to do Physics research at the University of Maryland. I later transitioned into education and have been Guest Professor at Sarah Lawrence College and Assistant Professor at Springfield College. I joined HCC in Fall 2021. I teach both Introductory Physics and General Physics courses, as well as Astronomy.
