I am an Electrical Engineer with a PhD in Applied Physics (Caltech 1975). Most of my career has been in the design of analog integrated circuits. I am now a Research Associate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Arizona.

My current interest is in the problem of establishing trust on the Internet, particularly for email systems. I have started a non-profit, which is sponsoring a Registry of Internet Transmitters. I am also the mail admin for, which provides the real-world experience I need to develop better models and systems.

Before I retire, I would like to put a big dent in the Internet crime problem. I believe the Registry will do that.
