Willkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome


For my work, I am a professor in the chemistry department at the University of Michigan. If that interests you, I have a faculty page and an archive related to my professional activities.

This site is personal. Hobbies, interests, and opinions. I like to present what a friend once called “a full human presence,” and not the manufactured persona of only being identified with my job… starting with the header photography, which are all pictures I took on trips. So see stuff through my eyes.

In the words of the emcee in “Cabaret” – Willkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome.
