I am a graduate of Columbia
University's Columbia College, with
my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry. I stayed on to earn a
degree in Metallurgy from Columbia's
Henry Krumb School of Mines
Listening to Horace Greeley's advice, I headed west and did my doctoral
work under John Paul Wallace and
William Gerberich at
the University of Minnesota, earning my
Ph. D. in
Metallurgy and Materials Science.
While working at the
Eutectic Corporation, I went back to school
and earned 17 undergraduate credits in
at Brooklyn College,
before earning my Master's degree.
Prior to teaching at Adelphi University,
I taught at Saint Peter's College (now
University) in Jersey City, NJ.
