Eric M. Weis was born in August of 1978 to Dr. John and Jamella Weis in Troy, Pennsylvania. After an idyllic childhood, he graduated from Troy Area Sr. High School in 1997, and went on to earn a Bachelors of Arts degree in chemistry at Reed College in Portland, OR. While there, he completed a thesis under the direction of Dr. Margret Gesselbracht on the intercalation chemistry of reduced alkali metal titanates, and obtained a reactor operator’s license for the Reed Research Reactor. After completing his undergraduate work, he took a position as the Associate Director of the reactor. He received his Ph. D. from the University of Missouri in May of 2010, after working under Drs. Paul B. Duval and Silvia S. Jurisson. Following his Ph. D., he continued to work with Dr. Jurisson investigating the environmental chemistry of reduced technetium compounds. He now works in a Material Science group at Los Alamos National Laboratory, studying the effects of aging and radiation on perfluoropolymers.
