Daryl R. Tweeton (M.S., Physics, 1968; Ph.D., Physics, 1972)


I have been married to my wife Jacqueline for 40 years.

We have two daughters and one grandson. Our only son passed away in May, 2008. I worked at the U.S. Bureau of Mines in Minneapolis as a research physicist until 1996. I now have my own company, GeoTom, developing and selling software for geophysics. My favorite memory from the University of Minnesota was learning to run the Van de Graff particle accelerator in the nuclear physics laboratory. My favorite professor was my advisor, Carl Poppe. My favorite course was quantum mechanics.
