He has published over 60 papers in the scientific literature and been invited to give talks at scientific meetings and universities over 100 times. Dr. Zeigler has also worked in conductive polymers, receiving several patents in that area, superacid catalysis, polymer photodegradation, and organic chemistry research. A curriculum vitae, listing publications, invited presentations, patents, testimony and other relevant materials is available. He has been involved in litigation support work for nearly 20 years, in addition to scientific consulting and other activities, primarily in various aspects of medical devices materials and manufacturing. A commercial scientific software program, SPCALC, developed and programmed by Dr. Zeigler, is available in a shareware version for free download from the Silchemy Downloads page.
Dr. Zeigler developed considerable scientific and litigation expertise in construction vibration damage arising from extensive damage done to his home during a road reconstruction project. He was the primary scientific consultant throughout that case. The consulting included damage and scientific documentation, testimony, expert and attorney scientific preparation, vibration monitoring data analysis, and case assembly all the way through trial. His work as author of has since expanded that knowledge and experience substantially.
