About the Author
About the Author:
- Was born a 7 lbs 14 oz 20 inches long baby boy at the Saint
Joseph's hospital in Paterson, New Jersey, parents Edith and Jerome Cohl.
- Was an infant, grew up, attended preschool, elementary school, middle school,
and ultimately graduated as a senior at Indian Hills High School in Oakland, New Jersey.
- Obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Astronomy and Astrophysics while attending
Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Began studying dynamical instabilities
inherent within unstable rotating self-gravitating fluid systems and star formation.
Performed research in 3D theoretical curvilinear astrophysical fluid dynamics with
Dick Durisen and Shelby Yang at the IU astronomy department.
- Learned about observational astronomy, data analysis, the Sun, UNIX, IDL, and met
many various characters at the National Solar Observatory in Sunspot, New Mexico.
- Studied under Joel Tohline and with many members of the physics staff
in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge,
Louisiana. Obtained a Doctor of Philosophy and Masters both in Physics at LSU.
Extensively studied special function literature as well as Green's function methods
for inhomogeneous linear partial differential equations. Investigated advanced
parallel/vector/serial computational physics tools and algorithms for general 3D
nonaxisymmetric theoretical studies of physical systems with a strong emphasis on
understanding Newtonian and Coulomb interactions through computational and
mathematical physics investigations from the fempto scales to typical scales of
multiple, binary, and single stellar/disk systems. Lived in historic Spanish Town
near the Louisiana state capitol building in downtown Baton Rouge.
- Worked on statistical and non-linear theoretical physics including parallel Monte
Carlo methods with Dana Browne as a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of
Physics at LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Began ongoing focus on parallel programming
and communication strategies using the Ziff-Gulari-Barshad model for the carbon
monoxide oxidation reaction which is an important chemical reaction which regularly
occurs in modern automotive catalytic converters. Catalytic converters convert
gasoline-engine produced carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide which can then be safely
expulled from industrial and society y the planetary
- Worked for DoD HPCMO PET as Senior Principal Analyst and Training Systems Support Manager
at NAVO MSRC located at the NASA John C. Stennis Space Center in Stennis Space Center, Mississippi.
- Worked on single, double, & multiple stellar structure and stellar evolution for star systems
as a postdoctoral researcher at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory in California.
- Visited many states including New Jersey, New York, California, Indiana, New Mexico,
Mississippi, Arizona, Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky,
Ohio, Illinois, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina,
Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusets, Colorado,
Maine, Nevada, Utah, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa, Florida, Michigan,
South Dakota, Wyoming, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.
- Had not visited the following states including North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, and Hawaii.
- Visited many countries including U.S.A., France, Monaco, Martinique, Mexico, Canada, England, Germany, Norway,
Denmark, Finland, Sweden, The Netherlands, Austria, Scottland, Belize, Ukraine, Hungary, Poland, New Zealand,
