Biographical Information

Research Interests


I am a condensed matter physics theorist with over forty years of using analytical
and large scale numerical techniques to study a wide range of fundamental and
applied physical problems. Before coming to UGA in 1986, I was senior
research physicist at Exxon Production Research in Houston. Over the years,
my research interests includes: Random Matrix theory, quantum and classical
fluids, device physics, liquid metals, phase transitions and critical phenomena,
transport of liquid and gas in porous media, mechanical and electronic properties
of superlattices and others. In recent years, I have also extended my research
into studying elastic properties of nanostructures, thermodynamics and transport
properties of gases and fluids in restricted geometry, fluid-mediated capillary
forces in nanostructured arrays and low gas permeability in laminate composite fabric.
