WHAT I DO
Print and online feature articles, short synopses, informational and publicity materials, newsletters, and reports.
Special emphasis on physical and materials sciences, engineering, and computational sciences.
My career profile on the ACS website
"I just want to see the raw data!"
For some fields of inquiry, the original, unaltered source is the most authoritative. For science, meaning relies on documentation, interpretation, and the evolution of knowledge.
