Following active military duty from 1968-1970 in the Ceramics Division of the Army Materials and Mechanics Research Center and industrial research experience in the Compound Semiconductor Materials Department at Bell Laboratories from 1970-1974, I joined the Marquette University School of Dentistry as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Dental Materials. During 15 years at Marquette, I was promoted to Professor, became Department Chair, served 5 years as the Director of Dental Graduate Studies, and directed the MS Program in Dental Materials. I have been a Professor in the College since the summer of 1989, directing the graduate program in dental materials. I also have a courtesy faculty appointment in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. I have been mentor for several Visiting Scholars and maintain active research collaborations with Dr. Masahiro Iijima (Hokkaido University, Japan) and Dr. Han-Cheol Choe (Chosun University, South Korea).
