Other Information

                      TECHNICAL EXPERTISE:

                      Broad expertise in materials engineering, physics, chemistry, and chemical engineering.

Specific experience in polymer physics, colloid science, light scattering, aggregation, ceramic and polymer materials science, in-situ composites, semi -crystalline polymers, structure of fluids, polymer solutions, dielectric properties of fluids, small angle x-ray and neutron scattering, porous materials, aerosols, inelastic neutron scattering, dynamics of disordered systems, corrosion, neutron and x-ray reflectivity.

,

MANAGEMENT ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

                      Led the development of a strategic plan for the University of Cincinnati, College of Engineering that incorporates modern management methodology and educational partnerships with industry.

                      Analyzed the DOE R&D management system.  Traced inefficiencies to failure to integrate science and technology on the project level.  Wrote a series of policy analysis reports to the Deputy Under Secretary of Energy recommending a team-based, decentralized project management system.  Co-organized a DOE-wide workshop to address these issues.

.                     Developed and secured funding for Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADA) with three major corporations.  Formed a partnership with two universities and three national laboratories to meet project goals.

                      Organized National DOE Basic Energy Sciences (BES) research program in polymer science.

                      Guided the Organic and Electronic Materials Department ($4M/Yr.) during the transition from weapons program support to multiprogram applied research (1989-1991).  During this period a loss of 17 FTEs of weapons funding was replaced by 14 major new initiatives in which the organization enjoyed an 80% proposal acceptance.  Five staff members were promoted to management.  Organization enjoyed continuous overfunding.

                      Established Sandia's program in disordered materials including obtaining Department of Energy  funding.  Program spans polymer, colloids and aerosols.  Management of four related projects for DOE Basic Energy Sciences and Defense Programs Technology Transfer Initiative.

                      Formed Cooperative Scattering Research Facility with University of New Mexico.

RESEARCH ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

                      First measurement of the second virial coefficient of the Kerr effect in gases.

                      Measurement of the anisotropy of the diffusion constant of rod-like particles.

                      First study of the effect of charge in the dynamics of colloids.

                      Use of liquid theory to model solutions of charged colloids.

                      Discovery of non-Gaussian number fluctuations in scattering from colloidal systems.

                      Theory of statistics of light scattered from small numbers of particles.

                      Theory and experiments on the effect of rotational motion on light scattered from motile bacteria.

                      First study of motility of microorganisms using number-fluctuation spectroscopy.

                      Systematic study of effect of temperature and solvent quality in the dynamics of semidilute polymer solutions.

                      Development of a unified theory for the dynamics of polymers and solution including cooperative diffusion, self diffusion, viscosity and osmotic pressure.
