Dr. Bateman did his graduate work at Texas A&M in cosmic radiation. While at Troy he worked four Summers at Argonne National Lab. He participated in the NASA Jove project, doing research at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Al with the space plasma group. He is currently involved in full time teaching.
Teaching: I teach the General Physics sequence, the Physics with Calculus sequence, and Modern Physics. I also teach Earth and Space Science and Astronomy. Research interest: My interest is in the ab initio calculation of electronic structures of small-to-medium-sized molecules. In particular, I am interested in examining topological aspects of the electron density that correspond to traditional chemical concepts such as bonding, ring and cage formation, atomic charges, and electronegativities.
