About Jeffrey Marque
Jeffrey Marque, a teacher, physicist, and musician currently living in San Mateo, California, began helping students during his undergraduate career, when he tutored high school students. In the early 1970s, Jeffrey Marque continued tutoring while he served as a Teaching Assistant at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). In the mid-1970s, he organized courses at UCSF centered around mountaineers’ medical concerns as a result of reading James Wilkerson’s book, Medicine for Mountaineering. Jeffrey Marque also instructed students in classical mechanics and electricity and magnetism courses at University of San Fransico. In the early 1990s, he served the College of San Mateo, where he instructed students in a beginning physics course during the college’s summer sessions. In addition to his work in teaching, Jeffrey Marque acted as Senior Staff Physicist at the Palo Alto, California-based Spinco Division of biomedical instrumentation company Beckman Coulter, Inc. He conducted research in the use of sedimentation-diffusion simulations in the control of rotor speed in ultracentrifuges there, and two of his findings became patented in the United States. In addition, his work was published in the journal Biophysical Chemistry and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers-sponsored Bioprocess Engineering Symposium. After the firm announced plans to relocate to Indianapolis, Indiana, Jeffrey Marque joined the Marine Systems division of Northrop Grumman Corporation, serving as Lead Simulation Engineer. He holds membership in the American Physical Society and the Institute of Noise Control Engineering, an organization that promotes engineering solutions to excessive acoustical noise in a variety of applications. Jeffrey Marque deeply believes in giving back to his community, and has volunteered with his local food bank in Sunnyvale, California, along with fellow colleagues from Northrop Grumman. He has also donated to the Interfaith Hospitality Network, an organization committed to helping needy families find housing and regain their dignity. As a donor to Old First Concerts in San Francisco, Jeffrey Marque supports a year-round concert series that feature a wide array of accomplished musicians. A musician himself, Jeffrey Marque spent a year studying chamber music at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. When he has time for leisure, he enjoys staying active, and likes riding his bike and hiking.
