Eric Willis, Ph.D.

Data Scientist

Dr. Eric Willis has over 8 years of experience using computational methods to solve difficult problems in the physical sciences. He earned his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Virginia, where his doctoral dissertation focused on the development of new computational methods to simulate the chemistry of star-forming regions and cometary ices. His areas of expertise include Monte Carlo algorithms, ordinary differential equation (ODE) solvers, and chemical kinetics. Dr. Willis is always interested in learning new computational techniques and applying them to emerging fields. At Elder Research, he uses these skills to solve difficult problems for government clients. 

Outside of work, Eric enjoys collecting records, watching baseball, and playing guitar.
