Professional Experience

Visiting Scientist (Trainee Beam Line Scientist) 01/02 - 06/02 
Lap Corp, CUNY - 03/03 - 07/03

  • Within first week was able to résumé 75% of the beam line scientist duties and managed night shift without assistance from the beam line scientist.
  • Organized and conducted international inter-comparison of primary standards for low pressure.
  • Worked as co-investigator on high technology materials, such as a project with microchip maker, Applied Materials Corporation, on properties of ultra thin films of SiO2Nx/si wafers and was involved in research in nano-structures and electronic properties of thin films of great technological importance.
  • Supervised Post Doc. during lab development and helped design DC Magnetron Sputtering System and Thin film deposition and thickness monitoring system and helped setup Electron Spectrum Analyzer, which was damaged during transit from [name of] research lab to LBL.
  • Designed and installed a computer controlled auto calibration system which significantly saved time and automatically recalibrated the beam of energy to eliminate angular errors.


  • Managed Surface Science Laboratory at Physics Department (1989 – 1998) and introduced collaboration between Surface Science lab and local industry R & D labs.
  • Managed research projects originated both inside and outside the university and coordinated group research activities and PhD and MS research projects; and promoted research collaboration with local industry and research centers through organizing short courses and workshops.
  • Upgraded departmental mechanical/machine shop hardware reducing maintenance cost by one-third and implemented professional training program for mechanical/machine shop personnel which increased productivity and efficiency significantly.
  • Managed freshman physics labs and graduate labs (1995 – 2001) and supervised Ph.D., M.Sc. Thesis and Graduate Lab projects.

Research & Development:

  • Developed traceable methods for measuring outgassing of water from technical materials and
  • Redesigned VG electron beam heating power supply and installed purpose built power booster to allow more controlled heating and extended the temperature range from 1000 °C to 1600 °C to facilitate flashing sample.
  • Designed and built a trip monitoring and emergency power fail system to prevent UHV chambers from being contaminated with oil from turbo backing pumps and keeping vacuum in until system can be restarted safely when power returned and maintained the correct temperature of the X-ray gun and water chillers.


  • Taught, developed and coordinated freshman and senior-level undergraduate courses for 15 years. Innovative methods and course material impressed [Name of] University so much that they adopted course material for use in physics courses; also taught graduate special topic courses related to Surface Physics and Materials Science.
  • Designed and taught courses to address transitions in mathematical understanding at a variety of levels. Developed and taught Gettysburg’s first mathematics service-learning course (for pre-service teachers). Coordinated a successful biweekly colloquium series to enhance public understanding of mathematics through novel speakers and interdisciplinary topics. Participated as a mathematics speaker for general and technical audiences and mentored students in summer research.
  • Designed demonstrations for Large Lecture Theater teaching that were later adopted for use by department.
