Lowell learned the value of a good Advanced Lab as a student, and has tried to carry on that tradition now as a Professor of Physics at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.  He joined the greater Advanced Lab community after reading Jonathan’s ‘call to arms’ editorial in the American Journal of Physics.  Lowell has been active in ALPhA: helping organize the BFY conferences, chairing the ALPhA Immersions organizing committee since its inception, and serving as a board member.
