Physicist, Theologian, Senior Creationist
He received an AB degree with high honors in physics and distinction in mathematics from San Diego State University in June 1954. After two years of graduate study in Physics and Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, (1954-1956), he joined the staff of SRI International (formerly Stanford Research Institute), in Menlo Park, California where he remained almost continuously for the next 30 years.
He left his position at SRI as a Senior Research Physicist in 1987 to pursue small-scale independent geophysical consulting services, and to devote the bulk of his time to Bible teaching, writing and Christian counseling. He will be guiding Trinity students and scholars in the areas of Apologetics and Creationism.
Some of the areas of his professional and personal experience and interest include the following:
* Auroral radar clutter, meteor trail communication, lunar radar reflections.
* Ionospheric physics and radio propagation studies
* Natural and artificial ionospheric effects
* Rocket launch and re-entry trail phenomenology
* Over-the-Horizon radar development
* Radar and communications effects from high altitude nuclear explosions
* Very high RF power generation by spark gap switching techniques
* Ball lightning and Nikola Tesla studies
* Electromagnetic propagation in the earth
* Development of ground penetrating radar (GPR) systems
* Electrical and gravity methods in geophysics
* Electrical methods for underwater detection and location
* High frequency seismic sounding for archaeology and geophysics
* Computer conference on unusual geological features on Mars
* Geophysical methods applied to archaeology: Egypt, Israel, and the US
* Tomographic HF methods for location of plastic utility pipes
* Measurements-while-drilling (MWD) technology
* Geophysical methods for tunneling machine technology
* Non-constancy of the velocity of light investigation
* Search for legendary treasures using geophysical methods
