While a student at the University of Michigan under the late Professor Otto Laporte, he constructed the first successful heated shock tube and conducted both experimental and theoretical studies on mercury plasmas.He has since continued his research in atomic physics of dense plasmas at Lehigh University with emphasis on transient kinetics and collective phenomena.His interest has, during his tenure at Lehigh, broadened to include the areas of fluctuation in gases and nonlinear phenomena in fluids.Recent research topics include: light scattering spectroscopy, electron transport and attachment in dense neutral gases, transport phenomena in ultra-dense plasmas, persistent autocorrelation in Brownian motion, laser-plasma interactions, radiation transport and excitation transfer in laser-produced plasmas, determination of fractal properties by optical spectroscopy, fluctuations in non-equilibrium steady state systems, 1/f dynamics and chaotic transitions in fluids and granular piles, interfacial instabilities, and thermophysical property measurement of high temperature materials.He is a fellow of the American Physical Society, first elected in 1982 for his research contributions."
