Paul J. Geiger PhD, Assoc. Prof. Emer. I'm a retired biochemist, career spent at the University of Southern California School of Medicine. After serving in the Navy as a lieutenant in the Korean war earned a PhD at Johns Hopkins University, 1962. In 2014 I found a fascination in haiku and other oriental forms of poetry primarily because I love the short forms with intriguing ideas or mysteries like Zen. I joined All Poetry to learn more about these forms. The haiga, haiku combined with interesting photos is a particular form of fun. Author and co-author of some fifty scientific publications. Member: SIGMA XI, Post Sophomore Fellowship, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
