Knots

I'm working on a paper with Prof. Buck of the Mathematics Department on a knot energy integral.  I have done some numerical analysis of the integral and collaborated with Prof. Buck on the physical interpretation of the integral.

Spreadsheet Laser

Prof. Guerra and I have developed a spreadsheet model of a laser.  Prof. Guerra has adapted it to characterize an actual laser in the department.

3-Dimensional Mapping

I've done some recent work with Prof. George of the Classics Department on the mapping of archeological sites by means of digital photographs.  Former students Paul Augros and Michael Smith have done much of the work.  Michael Smith designed and constructed apparatus and did surveying work.  John Augros wrote a program to analyze sets of digital images and, from them, generate the coordinates of points, in three dimensions, of interest.
