Education
Ph.D., Chemistry, University of Southern California, 1973
B.S., Chemistry, California State University, 1969

Research Interests
Synthesis and processing of inorganic/organic hybrids, metalloorganic and organometallic polymers, and nano building blocks based on polyfunctional octahedral (octafunctional) and dodecahedral Silsesquioxanes (POSS). Research in the nano-oxide powder area emphasizes the direct synthesis of single and mixed-metal oxide nano powders by flame spray pyrolysis of mixed-metal metallo-organics. The resulting powders are characterized for their structural, catalytic (energy  conversion  in particular) and photonics applications.
