Alger is a 3rd year chemistry graduate student working for Nick Winograd
at the Pennsylvania State University. His interest in programming started
before he joined the group but he started with OS/2 only after he joined.
His research has required him to rewrite the data acquisition software for
the OS/2 platform.
These programs control an angle-resolved time-of-flight mass spectrometer, which he uses to analyze surface chemistry using secondary ion mass spectrometry.
Alger has written the following articles:
