Prof. William Bricker is a Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at UNM, starting in the Fall of 2019. He received his Ph.D. in Energy, Environmental, and Chemical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, and his B.S. in Chemical Engineering at Bucknell University. As a Postdoctoral Associate in the Biological Engineering Department at MIT, he utilized computational chemistry to research novel synthetic excitonic devices using DNA as a scaffolding material, analogous to the natural biological light-harvesting complexes he studied during his Ph.D. tenure at Washington University. At UNM, he plans to develop computational tools to study efficient energy transport in biomaterials.
