Additional Information

Professional Career
I spent the majority of my professional career in industry. I spent brief periods with Bell Helicopter and General Dynamics, before joining Texas Instruments. The majority of my working career was spent at TI, from 1973 through 1998, with a brief 19-month hiatus in the middle to work for a startup that was partially owned by TI (1983 to 1985). On retirement from TI in 1998, I joined the University of Texas at Dallas as a Senior Lecturer, and have been a member of the faculty since that time. Although I received my Ph. D. in ion cyclotron wave propagation in an ionized gas (for the purpose of heating a fusion plasma), I immediately entered into a position as a digital design engineer upon graduation, and have spent most of my career in designing or supervising the design of digital and computer systems, or in related staff positions.
