Student Internship Carleton College
1969 Northfield MN
Developed programs for use
in teaching principles of quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics to undergraduate Chemistry students.
Summer and Part-time work Northwestern University Medical School
1970-1974 Chicago IL
Helped develop a minicomputer system to monitor patients in an intensive care unit.
My contributions includes computerizing calculations based on arterial blood gas determinations, and developing modifications to improve most of our s oftware tools. The tools I modified include our assembler, editor, symbol cross-reference lister, FOCAL interpreter and many smaller tools.
Evening and Part-time work 1979-1983
Developed and evalua
ted several microcomputer (Apple II) programs for patient education. These materials have been marketed commercially and have been used at numerous health fairs and at the Minnesota Science Museum.
A conversational HealthRisk Appraisal program for the Apple II which I wrote about 1980 has been demonstrated at a Centers for Disease Control conference on Health Risk Appraisal (March, 1980) and was adapted to run on IBM-compatible computers. It is available at
