SUMMARY OF EXPERIENCE

Area of Specialty

Research

 Doctoral degree and forty years post-doctoral experience in space plasma physics. I have extensive hands-on experience in sounding rocket (40 flights) and balloon (57 flights) operations. I have some experience (1 experiment) in the preparation of satellite experiments, in addition to a summer's work at the Spacecraft Techniques Laboratory of COMSAT. I have participated in the design, construction and interpretation of data from plasma probe, electric field, magnetic field, plasma wave, energetic particle and x-ray detection experiments. As a necessary consequence of this work, I have extensive experience in computer programming and related aspects of electronic data processing, including hardware operation and repair. I am actively involved in Space and Laboratory Plasma Physics Research at this time.

Instruction

I have forty years experience teaching the basic areas of physics at all levels. In addition, I have taught astrophysics at the senior undergraduate level and plasma physics in space and the laboratory at the graduate level.

Areas of Diversification

Research

As an undergraduate and graduate student, I worked as an R.A. in neurophysiology, neurosurgery, pharmacology and marine biology laboratories. Within physics, I have some experience with high energy physics.

Instruction

As a graduate student, I was first a Teaching Assistant and then Head Teaching Assistant of an interdisciplinary natural sciences course that required me to teach both chemistry and biology at the college level.

Other Skills

Competitive Snow Skiing -

10 years of active competition, 3 years of coaching and 10 years of officiating (including some overlap, of course) culminating in assisting at the 1980 Winter Olympics.

 

Fine Art -

Formerly enrolled as a student at the Alfred C. Glassell Jr. School of Art. I am pursuing a secondary vocation as a painter and sculptor.

 

Theater -

Over 40 production credits, including 24 lead credits as either producer or designer.

                 

Community Service -

44 years experience as an officer or director of a number of community service organizations.
