About Me

I have joined the UCI faculty in April 2003 as assistant professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. By way of introduction, here is what the Dean of Physical Sciences wrote about me in his newsletter. Some of it is actually true: Dean's Message (pdf)

A more personal view of the principles and qualities that I consider to be important for science as I enjoy it can be found in the links to the left. I have organized them as a tribute to those people and institutions that were examples for me. It is only in hindsight that you see how much you have been influenced and shaped by others. I believe in learning from all experiences, but the good ones definitely have had more influence on the way I look at science and life.
