On a personal note – Dr. Kaplun strongly believes that anyone engaging in solid-state technology should have a sense for mixing materials, as do cooks. Cooking is his passion outside the workplace. Born and raised in Uzbekistan, one of the culinary gems along the ancient Silk Road, he remains faithful to its cooking traditions.
