Here is a fairly recent publication list.

Work Related Stuff.

I actually enjoy what I do - even when the University ignores the cap I placed on the number of students allowed to enrol in my x-ray course. In addition to controlling the X-ray laboratory, I have many crystallographic etc. interests, some of which are outlined here.

I teach a regularly scheduled course in crystallography for graduate and advanced undergraduate students, and also sometimes teach the Physical Chemistry laboratory in the Fall.

My Erdös number is 4 (needless to say, it takes a particular kind of geek to be impressed by this sort of thing).

Non Work Related Stuff.

General interest stuff:

     Panoramic tripod head and further improvements
     Homemade gimbal head
     A few panoramas
          Koyasan, Japan August 2008
          Ice storm, Kentucky, January 2009
     Home theatre

House renovations (probably of little interest to most):

     New deck
     Interior prior to demolition
     Interior demolition
     Windows and skylights
     Interior work
     Exterior brick
     Living Room
