How I Can Help

Physics is all about practicing problem-solving strategies! Come to my drop-in hours for help on homework and problem sets, and I’m happy to give advice on test-taking tips and strategies for studying for physics.


My name is Sammy Risma, I am from Cincinnati, Ohio, and I use he/him pronouns. I am a biology major on the biochemistry track with a minor in bioinformatics. Outside of classes, I do pediatric research at the medical campus and volunteer at St. Mary’s Hospital. I love picnicking in Forest Park and finding new places to eat around St. Louis!
