without this I would never have guessed that Rakesh was
a specialist on optical wave guides, or that
Gerry had worked along with Litwin on improvements to Hashing theory,
that David Yaffe was a geneticist, and that Ajit published
in Geology and Biochemistry.

A new 'scholar' search engine I heard about via Sara Burke.
Try typing in your own name and see what pops up.

About Google Scholar

Google Scholar enables you to search specifically for scholarly
literature, including peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints,
abstracts and technical reports from all broad areas of research. Use
Google Scholar to find articles from a wide variety of academic
publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and
universities, as well as scholarly articles available across the web.

Just as with Google Web Search, Google Scholar orders your search
results by how relevant they are to your query, so the most useful
references should appear at the top of the page. This relevance
takes into account the full text of each article as well as the
article's author, the publication in which the article appeared and  how
often it has been cited in scholarly literature. Google Scholar also
automatically analyzes and extracts citations and presents them as
separate results, even if the documents they refer to are not online. This
means your search results may include citations of older works  and
seminal articles that appear only in books or other offline
