The Rutgers physics experience: The Professional Option for Physics Majors gave me the rigorous training and background needed to handle a top-notch physics graduate program.

Mentor: Joseph Sak and Stephen Shenker were great teachers.

Life after Rutgers: At Cornell I focused on biophysics and in particular nuclear magnetic resonance techniques for determining the three dimensional structure of proteins.

I spent a year as Visiting Scientist at IBM’s Almaden Research Lab working on the physical realization of quantum computation.

Ultimately I went to law school and returned to Ithaca where I am teaching and researching intellectual property law at Cornell Law School.
