About

"I began teaching at Stanford 50 years ago. I am the age of your grandparents. Hopefully that is a good thing. Over all those years I have taught thousands of students in the areas of chemical and biological engineering. My undergraduate degree is in chemical engineering from Berkeley and my PhD is in chemical engineering from Stanford. I live on the campus with my wife, Donna, who has worked in the Development Office for over 30 years. Our two kids grew up on campus. One is an ER physician and the other a national wine sales training manager. We all backpack and ski. I have a pilot’s license for land and sea planes. I commute on a bike I bought for $10 in 1957. My passion is ensuring that students develop the capability to define, address and solve complex problems that are important to improving the human condition."
