Since graduating or leaving ASU...
I received a PhD in Crystallography in 1990 at the Univeristy of Muenchen, Germany, where I also continued to stay as PostDoc. From 1997 through 2007/2008 I held a professorship in Crystallography and Mineralogy at the University in Wuerzburg, Germany and currently I am professor in the Department of Physics at the University in Erlangen-Nuernberg, Germany.
Personal activities such as hobbies, memberships, etc
As some of the 85'ers might remember, I rode my bicycle from California to Boston with a little detour through Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montanta, North Dakota, Minnesota, Michigan, Ontaria(CDN), New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Conneticut and Rhode Island. Needless to say, I still like to ride my bike (yes three different ones). No more long tours though...
Professional activities, current and past
Currently most of my work focusses on synthesis and structure determination of nanoparticles, and I also work on diffuse scattering. Since I enjoy teaching, I created an interactive WEB page dedicated to diffraction and wrote a book on the simulation of disordered crystals.
