Frederick H. Wirth

Associate Professor of Physics

Frederick H. Wirth, associate professor of physics, holds a B.A. from Queens College of CUNY and a Ph.D. from Stonybrook University of SUNY. His research interests center on laser physics and holography and sustainable energy systems.

One of his main goals at Hampshire is to create laboratory programs in the physical sciences and sustainable technology to help all students, regardless of their course of study, with their increasingly probable collision with technological obstacles.

Professor Wirth is an active member of the Environmental Studies and Sustainability Program (ESSP) and is happy to supervise projects exploring the design and adaptation of technologies to lessen their impact on the environment. He is also a committed and experienced practitioner of meditation who periodically offers instruction in this discipline.
