Thank you for the invitation to speak to the Engineering Physics Club
during my visit to Wesleyan this homecoming weekend. I am delighted to accept your offer.
I just haven't been able to make it back nearly
as often as I would like.
I wanted to update you on my career.
During my junior and senior years at Wesleyan, I decided
firmly on a career in science. I was
accepted straight into an excellent Ph.D. program in physics at
Texas Christian University,
which I completed in 1994.
After that, I accepted a position in Technical Service and Research for
Columbian Chemicals Company in Louisiana. I had the opportunity to research, write,
and present papers that were published in internationally recognized journals.
This year, I have embarked on a new career
as an assistant professor at Creighton University.
Thank you again for inviting me to speak to the
Engineering Physics Club. What an honor!
