Brief Bio

After high school I spent 8 years at Cornell (BS and PhD in Applied Physics), married Miriam Buskila in Ashkelon, Israel (1979).  Miriam grew up on a farm - Moshav Beth Shikma. Had a postdoc for 2 years at the Technion in Haifa where Carmit was born. Was at the Naval Research Lab, and in 1986 have been VP and co-founder of Infrared Focal Systems in Silver Spring, MD. I now work at Physical Optics Corporation, Torrance, CA, as a Principal Scientist. We have 3 daughters. Tamar lives in Israel (married with one daughter, Gabriella), Carmit (married) lives in Santa Fe, NM and makes Hatchup Katchup, and Yonina is a teacher in New York. Astronomy is still my main hobby.  The big telescope is being set up at Concordia University in Irvine, CA. I have discovered 5 new asteroids (none headed our way, fortunately!)
