Welcome to my Web site!         Update to New Site created with XARA website builder

I am a retired scientist (chemistry and physics).  After getting my PhD from Yale I spent time doing research in Germany on Fulbright and National Science Foundation grants, worked in University research, for the Federal government and with industry. Most of my work was with new products.  My retirement interests changed to Comparative Ethnography, comparing how people live, their tools, and how they dress.
