Past research:

(1977-1982)
Ph.D. student, Bhabha Atomic Research Center

With P.K. Iyengar and K.R.P.M. Rao, I developed novel detectors for nondestructive applications of nuclear resonant gamma ray spectroscopy. In collaboration with A.K. Grover, L.C.Gupta, R.G.Pillay and P.N. Tandon, I  studied magnetic Heusler alloys using magnetization, Mossbauer Spectroscopy, TDPAC and diffraction techniques .

(1982-1985)
Post-doctoral fellow at Northwestern University

With Professors Lyle Schwartz, John Ketterson, Tobin Marks and John Butt, I worked in the areas of magnetic superlattices and  applied catalysis.

(1985-1991)
Assistant Professor, Northeastern University

With Bob Markiewicz, Bill Giessen, Rongjia Tao, S.F.Wahid, Joanne Woestman, M.Meskoob and Pradeep Haldar, I worked in high temperature superconductivity and  electro-rheological fluids.

(1991-2002)
Professor, Illinois Wesleyan University

With undergraduate students, Jason Payne, J.Chen, Dana Deardorff, Kimberly Branshaw, Garrett Davis, James Rinne, Melissa Crews and Alex Laurie, I have been working with on a wide variety of problems accessibile to undergraduates (see examples below).With John Cashion and Tamar Greaves at Monash University, I worked on developing a new experimental technique in Mossbauer Spectrometry.
