John has been involved in Flow Cytometry Technology since 1972. With a
background in experimental physics, his work has focused on instrumentation
development. Highlights have included building and delivered an early cell
sorter to the NIH in 1974, developing a high speed chromosome sorter as part
of the the Human Genome program, participating in the development of single
molecule detection and participating in the Annual Course in Flow Cytometry
since the early 80s. The later became even more important with the introduction
of the “Build a Flow Cytometer Lab” at the 1990 Flow Course at Bowdoin College.
These and other activities have resulted in over 80 publications and a dozen or
so US Patents.
When not working with lasers, flow chambers or detectors John can often be
found on the river or somewhere involved in southwest archaeology
