Tom Tiedje #498
(Victoria, British Columbia, Canada)
Email Status: Good  
Editors Note: Tom Tiedje came to the University of British Columbia from Toronto in 1973 via Calgary, to do a PHD in Physics. Armed with Culbert's guide, he proceeded to knock off anything that could be reached in a day or two from Vancouver. After completing his PHD in 1977, and co-inventing the physics for the Moli cell battery with R. Haering, he moved to New Jersey to do research on solar electricity with Exxon. During this period he periodically returned to the mountains of British Columbia. In 1987 he returned to Vancouver full time. Tom currently is the head of the UBC Physics and Astronomy Department and a professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and can still be gotten out on mountain adventures, especially if the schedule has been compressed.
