Hi, my name is Philip Kahn. I am a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley with a BA in Astrophysics, and a strong interest in biology, particularly paleontological biomechanics. My Berkeley class list pretty much explains the rest of what I'm interested in, as well as providing a reference document for what I am particularly trained in.

I've done research for the Kepler Project, which was launched in 2009. I also do some independent work on sauropod biomechanics, both of which you can find more about in my research section.

Additionally, I've worked with the Lawrence Hall of Science in revising and teaching a camp on evolution for 4th-6th graders, a camp on programming and Lego Mindstorms for 5th-7th grades, and a camp on electronics for 7th graders.

I have done work with the UC Berkeley IB department & the UC Museum of Paleontology in developing a new website to distribute macroevolutionary examples to publishers and K-12 teachers, which is currently still in beta, and is currently delayed. However, you can see my phylogenetic work at compiling data from various sources online. My very ambitious goal is to have it complete to family for extant animals by 2014.

Currently much of my income is obtained with various freelance computer repair, web design, and website maintenence. However, I am credentialed by the state of California as a substitute teacher, and am looking for employment in the La Jolla or San Diego school districts. Look for a section of the site up for commentary, reviews, and testimonials from clients by the end of the year.

For fun, I play the clarinet, am attempting to learn the piano, goof around on computers and the internet, play various obscure games, and code — both for research purposes and for its own sake. I am a strong believer in open source, open content, and free distribution and attempt to make much of my work compatible with that ideal, as well as contribute to various "Wiki" projects.

Feel free to navigate the site to learn more about me.

This site was hand-coded with Notepad ++ and Emacs 22.1. All documents online have been prepared via LaTeX. This page is generally kept less updated than any of my sub-pages, so I apologize in advance for any persistant rough edges.
