Degrees

  • Postdoctoral (1963-64), Cornell University (Benjamin Widom, Peter Debye)
  • Postdoctoral (1961-62), National Bureau of Standards (Kurt Shuler)
  • Ph.D. (1961), University of Utah (J. Calvin Giddings)
  • B.S. (1959)

Research Interests

Research activities center around the theory of molecular collisions. Principal topics of current research include the dynamics of gas-surface reactions, collision-induced intramolecular energy flow and bond dissociation in large molecules, and vibrational relaxation of matrix-isolated guest molecules.
