He returned to Ohio State to finish his Ph.D. in physical chemistry, writing his thesis on molecular spectroscopy. In 1947, he began work on nuclear power reactors for General Electric's Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory in Schenectady, N.Y. His work involved research on fission products, actinides, separation and neutron capture cross sections, including a joint project with Atomic Energy of Canada Limited studying highly irradiated plutonium containing transplutonium elements up to fermium. On June 28, 1949, he married Ellen Jean Bruner, a nursing professor at Ohio State. They had three daughters. In 1957, he accepted a position at the National Reactor Testing Station in Idaho Falls, where he worked on the chemistry, decay properties and production of fission products and actinides. He was part of a team that isolated large samples of radioactive isotopes for cross section studies, including a gram of Pa-233. He taught nuclear chemistry and chemical reprocessing of nuclear fuel at the University of Idaho extension. In 1965, he was awarded a Fulbright grant to teach nuclear chemistry at Sri Venkateswara University in Tirupati, India. His entire family went along for the unforgettable year. They returned to Idaho Falls for several years. In 1969, he accepted a position as professor of chemistry at Robert College, a private American institution in Istanbul, Turkey. For eight years, he taught everything from general to quantum chemistry. In 1971, the university became a Turkish institution, University of the Bosphorus. In 1977, he and Ellen returned to the states. As a visiting professor, he taught nuclear engineering at Iowa State University for one year, there he researched the production of actinide waste by different fuel cycles and taught a special class in nuclear waste management.
