Before coming to the University of Iowa's Graduate Physics and Astronomy program, I spent a year living and working at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station in Antarctica. I worked as an Upper Atmospheric Scientist maintaining and running the 13 experiments that were part of that discipline during the 1984 season. I lived there from 7 November 83 until about 7 November 84. (The lowest ambient air temp was -104° F, everyone always asks!) I took lots of auroral and astronomical photographs while I was there and here are two that came out pretty nice.
I completed my Master's Degree working with Dr. Louis A. Frank in May 1990. I continued with Ph.D. research projects but eventually accepted a full time Programmer Analyst position in Frank's Particles and Imaging Research group in 1993. I was later promoted to a Systems Analyst and maintain all the computing systems for the group and lots of the application software.
I am now only working part-time for the Particles and Imaging Group. My new full-time (Day!) job is with the University of Iowa HealthCare Information Systems Department (UIHC/HCIS). In particular, the INFORMM-Cerner Systems Group (ICS) where I am the Systems Administrator III managing the OpenVMS cluster for the Cerner HNAC PathNet and PharmNet modules.
Here is one of my mottos!
