Ryan Davis, Ph.D.
- Assistant Professor , Chemistry
Prof. Davis grew up in New Mexico, where the abundant sunshine fueled his interest in how light interacts with matter. He pursued undergraduate studies at Colorado State, where he became fascinated with spectroscopy and the chemistry of confined environments working with Prof. Nancy Levinger. He pursued PhD studies at the University of Colorado studying aerosol phase transitions with Prof. Margaret Tolbert. As a postdoctoral fellow at Berkeley Labs with Dr. Kevin Wilson, he studied chemical reactivity in microdroplets. In 2018, he joined the faculty of Trinity, where his research focuses on the chemistry and physics of aerosol particles and micro-droplets to address global issues in environmental and public health.
