|Career Accomplishments||During his 45 year research and teaching career, Professor Gordon has taught more than 10,000 undergraduate students and has published more than 200 peer-reviewed papers describing research with his graduate students, post-doctoral research associates and other research colleagues. He has presented more than 400 research papers at national and international meetings. His research efforts have attracted more than $6 million (well in excess of $18 million in current dollars.) He has received numerous awards and honors recognizing his efforts and those done jointly with research colleagues. Dr. Gordon and his students will continue to research, consult and advocate on issues that affect the drinking water industry. In 2009, he was a Senior Founding Partner of Gordon & Rosenblatt, LLC, which is an independent firm that is specialized in the science, technology and application of ozone, chlorine dioxide and other oxy-halogen species. He has received awards for his excellent teaching at the graduate and undergraduate level. His lifetime body of research and the research yet to come has had and will continue to have a major impact on both the teaching of chemistry and the drinking water industry.|
