MY FORMER LIFE AS A

ROCKET SCIENTIST AND LASER JOCK

My PhD dissertation was on laser-induced fluoescence applied to supersonic flow; here's a photo of me in my laboratory at NASA Ames.  From 1987 to 1990 I worked at the Mechanical, Aerospace, and Nuclear Engineering Department of UCLA as a research engineer and lecturer. There I helped Professors Ann Karagozian and Owen Smith build and test a novel toxic waste incinerator that employs a fluid mechanical trap and acoustic resonance like that found in many rocket engines. My job was to use a sheet of laser light to illuminate the particle-seeded flow for the purpose of measuring velocity. I took some lovely photographs of  swirling particles  lit by laser light. To find out more about this project check out the Resonant Incinerator Home Page.
