A picture of Jason Ho

Dr. Jason Ho

Associate Professor of Engineering & Physics

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.
