I am a retired scientist(chemistry and physics) who now spends most of his time traveling to interestingplaces in the world. After getting my PhD from Yale I spent time doing researchin Germany on Fulbright and National Science Foundation grants, worked inUniversity research, for the Federal government and with industry. Most of mywork was with new products. Ihave now changed my field to Comparative Ethnography. This gives me a reason tolook into all parts of the world.
