Medium-Energy Physics:

Nucleon-Nucleon Interactions
Meson-Nucleus Interactions
Weak Interactions
Accelerator Physics
Quark Models of Hadrons

Founding Member of Group T-5 (1971), Medium Energy Nuclear Physics Theory. Group Leader, 1976-78.
T-5 later merged with T-2, Applied Nuclear Theory, to form T-16, Theoretical Nuclear Physics.
T-16 has since been combined with high-energy physics, astrophysics, and cosmology, to form the group called T-2.

Ph. D., University of Michigan, 1963.
Post-docs at Johns Hopkins University and Catholic University.
Joined LANL Staff, 1967, primarily to work with LAMPF research program.

Left full employment at LANL in the fall of 1993 to found WhistleSoft, Inc., a company specializing in developing multimedia software products for science and engineering. This company was closed in 2009.

Maintains a part-time relationship with T-2 as a guest scientist.
