Professor of Physics
Interests: Gravity, Cosmology, Fundamental Particles Age: 68
My formal training was in gravitation and earth physics. In 1986 I started to seriously look at periodicities in earthquakes. At the age of 36, I started to seriously study science and challenge accepted dogma. Whenever the data conflicted with what I was taught, I followed my heart. Within the next 14 years I rejected many established theories and came to view academic science with a distrust.
By 1996, I thought that I had the basis of a grand unified theory. After some effort, I managed an invitation to a conference of astronomers and physicists at the University of Arizona. After my presentation, I quickly realized that I was combining theories that the audience never heard of to explain phenomena that they did believe existed.
