Involved in design and development of particle accelerator facilities and equipment since 1964. Responsible for design, development, installation, and management of most of the current facilities in the University at Albany Accelerator Laboratory. Those designs include high vacuum and ultra-high vacuum beamline systems, ion sources and ion optics equipment, precision target positioning apparatus, precision beam positioning apparatus and electronic control systems.

Designed and developed extensive upgrades to the SUNYA Dynamitron Accelerator, including mechanical redesign and remanufacture of the accelerator stack.

Initiated and supervised a complete redesign of the accelerator control electronics system, including high precision solid-state analog circuitry, analog automation circuitry and computer automation of the accelerator system.

Initiated, supervised and participated in development of the SUNYA microcomputer systems now used for data taking and analysis.

Designed and implemented the SUNYA microbeam facility. Initiated, supervised, and participated in the second-generation upgrade of the microbeam microcomputer control system.
