About Author

Charles H. Drummond, III, received his PhD from Harvard University in 1974 and his research interests are primarily focused on the structure and properties of amorphous solids or glasses. This includes bulk glasses of scientific and commercial interest and glasses present in crystalline materials. Dr. Drummond is the director of the Annual Conference on Glass Problems, and has received the Governor's Award for Emerging Technology and the Cramer Award from the American Ceramic Society.
