Ryan Davis, Ph.D.
- Assistant Professor , Chemistry
Prof. Davis grew up in New Mexico, where the abundant sunshine perhaps fueled his interest in how light interacts with matter. He pursued undergraduate studies at Colorado State, where he became fascinated with spectroscopy working with Prof. Nancy Levinger. He received his PhD from the University of Colorado working with Prof. Margaret Tolbert studying aerosol phase transformations. As postdoctoral fellow, he studied accelerated chemical reactivity in microdroplets at Berkeley Labs with Dr. Kevin Wilson. In 2018, he joined the faculty of Trinity, where he is in his dream job: engaging with motivated students, connecting with the broader community, and pursuing meaningful research studying the physicochemical properties of micro-environments to address global issues in environmental and public health.
