Professor Halstead is a cosmologist who has studied gravitational collapse, thermodynamic
properties of black holes, and Beyond-the-Standard-Model scalar field inflationary
potentials. He is also interested in Physics Education Research, exploring the use
of media to increase student engagement as well as examining the effect that supplementary
materials have on student solution methods.
