Since graduating in 1988 from Mason, I spent 1 1/2 years at Duke studying Mathematics, and then switched back to Physics at UMD. While I was there, I worked in a collaboration that included Bob Ellsworth. My thesis was in experimental high energy particle Astrophysics (Jordan Goodman was my advisor). I graduated in 1995, spent two years as a post-doc at the Naval Research Lab, and in 1998 switched careers and began working at the Institute for Defense Analyses, which does hire physics grads who are U.S. citizens
