After leaving ASU, I was in New Mexico (UNM; 2002-2004), Indiana (IU; 2004-2005), Baltimore (JHU; 2004-2005), and New Mexico (2005-2006). In 2004 and 2005, I worked in Baltimore, while my family was in Indiana. I had a good experience at JHU, but perhaps such living style was very hard for my family members, especially for children. My son, Yuki, became unstable and showed school refusal often. After leaving Indiana, I spent my time with Yuki, while doing some analytical consulting projects and technical translation jobs. Now, all of my family members are fine. I am starting to work at University of Wisconsin on October 1 as a research associate. I will take care of X-ray lab at Department of Geology (50%), and I am doing TEM research at Department of Engineering (50%).
