I have a bit of an unusual background for a physicist. Before pursuing my Ph.D. I served in the Marine Corps, worked in electronics, and was a systems programmer. My doctoral work was in experimental atomic physics. I studied the scattering of electrons by helium atoms. After that I became interested in learning how a laser beam affects the scattering process. I have been doing experiments on laser assisted electron scattering for the past nine years. So far, I have published three articles [1,2,3] in Physical Review A about these experiments.
