Speaker Bio: Eric Shirley received his PhD in Physics in 1991 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. As a Hertz Fellow at Urbana-Champaign, he studied electron correlation effects in atoms, molecules, and solids. From 1991-1993, Eric was a Miller Fellow at the University of California-Berkeley and from 1993-1994 he held a postdoctoral position at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Eric joined the NIST Physics Laboratory in 1994, where his research interests include computation of optical properties of materials throughout most of the electromagnetic spectrum (far infrared to hard x-ray) as well as mathematical physics, especially in relation to diffraction effects in radiometry.
