Hossein Rojhantalab (b. 1944), a native of Iran, conducted doctoral studies at OSU in Physical Chemistry, completing his Ph.D in 1976. Rojhantalab then returned to Iran, working as a university professor and textbook publisher. In 1985, alarmed by the turmoil that had arisen in the wake of the Iranian Islamic Revolution, Rojhantalab came back to the United States, ultimately settling into a successful career at Intel, Inc. His interview discusses his background, the time that he spent in Corvallis, the circumstances that led to his final departure from Iran, and his life at Intel.
