Dr. Margaret Neubig
I was born in NYC, and attended St. Benedict’s School in the Bronx before moving to Connecticut, where I attended St. Thomas Aquinas School and Notre Dame High School. I earned my bachelor’s in physics from the University of Virginia, and moved to Northern Virginia to accept a government job after graduation. I later left the government to pursue a doctorate in physics from Catholic University, after which I completed a post-doctorate in ultraviolet spectroscopic studies of starburst galaxies at NASA/Goddard.
I have taught undergraduate physics at Catholic University and Marymount University, and taught middle school science at St. James School in Falls Church. I have recently developed an interest in signal and image processing, and have undertaken graduate coursework in the electrical engineering department at George Mason University.
I am married with three daughters- two are students at Paul VI HS and one just completed her freshman year at Mary Washington University. My husband is a mechanical engineer. We are active parishioners at Saint James.
I am extremely committed to Catholic education, and am honored to be able to contribute to the mission of educating our youth within the context of a faith-based school. I have been delighted to encounter the warm and kind spirit which permeates St. Ambrose School, and I look forward to being able to share my love of science and math with the students of St. Ambrose.
