## Research Interests

- Mathematical analysis and applied mathematics
- I received my Masters and Ph.D. degrees in Mathematics from Stanford University.
- I have worked on applications using differential equations, queueing theory, generalized functions, optimal control, differential geometry, group theory and signal analysis. Areas of application have included earthquake modeling, chip manufacturing, mobile telephone network modeling, biological structures (tendrils), and computer-assisted language instruction.
- I have been employed at research laboratories at Stanford University, US Geological Survey and Hewlett-Packard. Recently I served as acting director of the Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science where previously I had been chief scientist.
- At HP Labs, I patented the first rigorous method for calibrating interferometer stages, used in manufacturing computer chips and nano-technology. See (caution, sixty-six page pdf file) Self-calibration of Interferometer Stages.
- I cofounded a Silicon Valley startup, focusing on organizing and indexing resources on the Internet, using digital library and metadata principles.

## Distinguished Speaker Series

I organized the Dr. Bruce J. Nelson '74 Distinguished Speaker Series for Academic Year 2002-2003, Sinews of Civilization: Water, Power and Transportation - A California Perspective on the World. The series was designed to introduce social, economic and political considerations into global problems that also pose difficult technical challenges.
