David was born in Buffalo, NY in November 1952. He has a B.S. in Physics from Purdue University and a Ph.D. in Physics from Caltech. After graduating from Caltech, David worked at NASA Ames Research Center (California), Leeward Community College (Hawaii), and the Ohio Supercomputer Center, before accepting his current position in the Astronomy Department at Ohio State University.
David and I met at Caltech in 1976, as grad students, when we were both committed to other people. After both our relationships dissolved, and many years of dating each other and dating other people, we finally decided to live together in 1988. We currently live together in Columbus, Ohio.
David loves to teach. He typically teaches four or more courses per year for the Ohio State astronomy department, plus two courses per year in astronomy for nearby Otterbein College.
David's interests are diverse and ever-changing. Currently he enjoys watching action films, science fiction, anime, TV crime shows, and doing crossword puzzles with our cat Pippin.
