I received my BS in Engineering Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute during May of 1994. My undergraduate experience was interesting to say the least. The most memorable experience was participating in a research project under the guidance of Dr. Ivar Giaever. This was incredibly exciting since Dr. Giaever won the Nobel Prize in physics (in 1973). Understandably, It was an honor to work with him.
After my undergraduate experience was over, I ventured to McGill University in Montreal, Canada. It was there that I received my MS in Medical Radiation Physics in February 1997 and learned the true meaning of the word "cold". My advisor was the world-renowned medical physicist Dr. Ervin B. Podgorsak.
After McGill University, I came back to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute where I received a Ph.D. in Nuclear Science & Engineering during September 2003. My thesis advisors were the experimental experts Dr. Robert C. Block and Dr. Yaron Danon.
I have been trying out various mass building routines. The most interesting so far is radical hypertrophy training.
I used to play and study chess on a daily basis. I also played in USCF rated tournaments a few times a year. I made many trips to the famous Manhattan Chess Club and the Marshall Chess Club in New York City. I still occasionally play 5 minute Blitz chess online. If you play on FICS or gameknot, my username is "devster". Feel free to challenge me to a game.
Most of the games I play are PC based MMORPGs.
