About Dr. Charles X. Sun:

Dr. Charles Sun received a B.S. degree in applied physics from Dalian University of Technology in China, and earned a master's and a Ph.D. in experimental atomic physics from the University of Kentucky (Lexington). Dr. Sun joined Medaille College as an assistant professor in 2002. His primary teaching assignments are the Principles of Physics and the Physical Science courses. Dr. Sun has been constantly reexamining and improving his methods in teaching. He uses various student-centered, active learning methods to replace the traditional lecture-oriented method, and a concept-driven approach to replace the formula-driven process in his math, physics, and physical science courses. Dr. Sun’s research focused predominantly on the interaction of highly excited (Rydberg-state) sodium atoms with charged particles and electric fields, and precision fine-structure spectroscopy of highly excited states for sodium atoms. Dr. Sun is a member of the American Physical Society, Division of Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, and a member of the American Association of Physics Teachers.
