My research credentials (in three different areas over a 20 year time period)

There has been some questioning of my research credentials, especially vis-à-vis the celebrities of Shroud research (Raymond N. Rogers, John H. Heller, Alan  D. Adler etc) , on Dan Porter’s site. Nope, I’m not rising to the bait (and that sadly is a site where baiting is allowed on an industrial scale, unless it’s me issuing a mild reprimand, in which case a slap-down arrives in short-order).

It’s easy enough to locate someone’s published work, simply by entering their surnames and initials into Google Scholar. I have just done that for myself and have come up with the following, placed in reverse chronological order for the 3 main places of work (FMBRA, RFHSM and the University of Pennsylvania Hospital Medical School).

(Note: there are some formatting and other inconsistencies, omisions etc. etc that will need some attention).

PS : I did warn  folk a few days ago that this blog is now little more than a personal archive,   it having ceased to be proactive back in March. When I feel I have something new to say, it is posted to where I know it will be quickly seen and read, even if the audience there is largely hostile,  and those comments merely copied here later at leisure.
