I like to create value through basic research and discovery in physics, through developing new methods of interdisciplinary research, through translational research, and through commercialization. I am an experienced and dedicated physics educator at the undergraduate and graduate levels. I have 12 USA patents and many international filings, and I have started successful companies.
