Collin D. Wick

Biography

Dr. Collin Wick got his PhD from the University of Minnesota, carried out two Postdoctoral positions at National Technical University Athens in Greece and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, WA before becoming faculty at Louisiana Tech University. He is the current Program Chair of Chemistry, and is a Century Telecom Endowed Associate Professor. He has over 50 publications in peer reviewed journal and over 50 invited talks to Regional, National, and International conferences. Collin Wick’s research focus is on using computational chemistry to solve problems relevant towards interfaces of solids, liquids, and polymers. These are relevant towards battery electrode and electrolyte design, atmospheric chemistry, metal manufacturing, biological processes, to name a few. The methods utilized include classical, semiempirical, and first principles methods, and he has experience in development molecular models to bridge multiple time and length scales.
