Who am I?
I'm currently (20-November-2000) unemployed. I've recently resigned my
position at Montana State, to accept a new position with a
Japanese IT Consulting Firm.
Right now I'm waiting on visa paperwork from emmigration. This will
all lead to a series of stories on life in Japan. Stay tuned.
Everything that follows is my life prior to this big career change.
It will slowly bit-rot until it's completely out of date.
I was the #2 TRACE Postdoc at
Montana State University. My mark of distinction is to be the
first Ph.D. out of the MSU Solar Physics program
at Montana State University
- Bozeman. (Post-note: Meet Ph.D. #2.)
Things you'll need to know later...
When the rest of the world realizes how crucial I really am, the radio
stations will probably start asking trivia questions about me. You'll
want to know the following background in preparation for this event:
- I'm involved in the
TRACE project. The most visible things I've done can be
- My publications.
- Here's my Curriculum Vitae.
- I've written a LaTeX template for the MSU MS and PhD thesis
formats. It should already pretty much fill the bill for any of
the physics folks. Well, OK it only really works for the solar
folks. A rogue copy that works for the unwashed masses may be found
elsewhere. Fetch the gzipped tarball
- This page is a memorial to a
younger, more free-wheeling period in my life.
- So what do people do fresh out of the MSU Solar Physics Ph.D. program?
We really don't know, since I'm the first. I can't think
of a better way to get the rest of my life off on the right foot than
to immediately have a
mid-life crisis. (Pay special attention to "climate".)
