Here is a recent copy of my CV.
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
House renovations (probably of little interest to most):
Interior prior to demolition
Windows and skylights
