About me

I am a retired computational physicist who spent 28 years at the Eastman Kodak Research Labs. My work there involved a wide range of research modeling materials and fluids using lattice Boltzmann, dissipative particle dynamics, and other methods. These days I am working with Kieron on classical DFT and connections to quantum DFT.
