Welcome to my homepage. I am a condensed matter/materials theorist, working on the science of disordered materials. I am a distinguished professor at Ohio University, and former Leverhulme Professor at the University of Cambridge.

My h-index is 55 and my work has been cited in scholarly research about 10,000 times (google scholar).

Since 1993, I have produced 19 PhDs who currently occupy professorships in research universities in the U.S. and abroad, permanent jobs in government labs and postdocs at leading institutions.

My research has been continuously funded since 1994. I have been awarded more than a dozen competitive federal grants from the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Defense and Department of Energy.
