I'm Jason Ho, an Assistant Professor at Dordt University teaching undergraduate physics and studying the building blocks of matter. A theoretical physicist by trade, I study quarks, gluons, and how they combine to form everything we see around us (as well as particles that perhaps we have yet to find).  I love solving problems and coming up with creative solutions, in science, teaching, or everyday life.

When I'm not teaching, programming, or researching, I'm probably in the kitchen tending to some new recipe, fermentation, or culinary experiment. I love good food and good drink of all kinds, and I'm always searching for new tastes and new cuisines.
