Then he spent his Ph’D thesis in Physics (1962-1967) while he was in the technical staff at the Bell Telephone Laboratories (New Jersey). He became instructor at MIT in 1967 and assistant professor in 1970. Then he switched for University of South Florida where he became full professor in 1976. In 1976, he moved to Drexel University where he is still today.
Robert Gimore wrote numerous papers in the fields:
