After receiving a B.S. degree from Caltech, he did graduate work at Stanford University receiving an M.S. in Electrical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering. He was then a post-doc at IBM’s research lab in Zurich, Switzerland in the oxide superconductors and novel materials group managed by Nobel Prize winners J. Georg Bednorz and K. Alex Müller. In 1992 he joined the faculty at Penn State in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, where he spent 16 years before joining the faculty at Cornell in 2008. At Cornell he now serves as the Director of the Platform for the Accelerated Realization, Analysis, and Discovery of Interface Materials (PARADIM), a national user facility funded by the National Science Foundation with the mission of empowering practitioners to accelerate the discovery of atomically engineered inorganic materials that revolutionize electronics. He served on the Executive Committee of the American Association for Crystal Growth (2002-2013), on the MRS Board of Directors (2005-2007), and also as Chair of the Division of Materials Physics of the American Physical Society (2012-2013). He is a Fellow of both the American Physical Society and the Materials Research Society.
