He is now a Paul Whitfield Horn Professor of Physics. His theoretical research deals with defects in semiconductors and nanostructures, and their impact on the electrical, optical, and thermal properties of the material. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society since 1997 and of the Institute of Physics (UK) since 2006. He won the 2001 Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Prize from the Humboldt Foundation. He has given over 50 invited and plenary conferences and over 100 technical seminars around the world.

He is also interested in the history of wine, and has published a book and several papers in this area.
