I teach physics at Fullerton College, a community college in Southern California. I have an undergrad degree in math and physics from Berkeley and a PhD in physics from Yale. Back when I was doing research, my field was experimental low-energy nuclear physics.

comment Where is wild camping possible in Europe?
@MarkMayo: I see. I guess in USian we'd refer to this as "backcountry camping" or "backpacking," as opposed to "car camping."
