Research Interests

My research interests have been varied over the past many years. I have done research and published in the areas of theoretical infrared spectroscopy, flame spectroscopy, electrochemistry, artificial intelligence, robotics and a wide variety of computer applications to chemical problems.  I am now retired and no longer active in research.
