I like to teach Physics, Rollerblade every morning, and make stained glass projects.  My latest is a LSU Tiger for a certain recent B.S. graduate in CompSci.

Research Interests

My current research interests are:

Depolarized Light Scatter using a custom instrument that was designed and built in collaboration with Tulane Physics and Poly/RMP.   It has proven to be repeatable to 20nm using sodium dodecyl suphate above the 2 CMC.

 

Mathematical Modeling of paleontological life stage growth data in 50 million year old fossils.
