About Dr. Robert E. Buxbaum etc.

My home after the 2014 Oakland county, MI flood. I had to throw out lots of stuff.

My Oak Park home after the 2014 flood. I’d like to avoid a repeat.

Some personal background: I’m 60 years old, and have a wife and 3 children. We’ve lived in Michigan for the past 40 years, for the last 21 in Oak Park. I’m an observant Jew, with a PhD (chemical engineering from Princeton Univ. *81), and an undergraduate degree from Cooper Union.

I come from New York, but went to school in Brooklyn (4th largest city in the US. Wanna make something of it?). I own and run two hydrogen energy companies, REB Research, specializing in hydrogen generators and Hydrogen Purifier.com specializing in hydrogen purifiers.  Before running these companies, I was a professor of chemical engineering at Michigan State University, with a brief stint at Wayne State.

This blog is a way to get my random ideas out for posterity. It’s also useful, now that  I’m running for water resources commissioner of Oakland county, MI (Republican). I think I can do a better job than the incumbent in avoiding floods and dealing with sewage.  I find the local Democrats somewhat corrupt in this area. If you want to help, please do so here.
