About

This is an occasional blog collecting essays, blog posts, and various writings I’ve written. A number of these have previously appeared on Athena Andreadis’ blog, Starship Reckless, while others have appeared on Science In My Fiction.

I am a professor of physics at San Diego State University; my research revolves mostly around theoretical nuclear physics and the quantum structure of atomic nuclei. Hence the title.  I’m also a “pro” (by the definition of the Science Fiction Writers of America) science fiction author, and have even had over twenty poems published. Also hence the title.  For a while at SDSU I taught a course on Science and Science Fiction, although due to budget constraints we could not offer that course any longer.

I plan to write about science, about fiction, and especially about science fiction.  I hope you enjoy.  I do request civil behavior; strangely enough, even science can stir up trolls. Although I am employed by a public university, this is a private blog.
