Graduate School: Cornell University, PhD physics.
Current Position and Employer: Professor of Law, Cornell Law School
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.
Year graduated Rutgers: 1994
