515 Warren Pickett
From Alan Jackman
His research has focused on theoretical aspects of condensed matter physics, particularly electronic structure and properties of quantum materials. His interest has focused on magnetic and superconducting behavior of solids, with some emphasis on magnetic materials that also become superconducting. He has received several awards, including appointment as Fellow of the American Physical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the U. K. Institute of Physics. One interesting assignment occurred after his two-week trip in 2014 to four universities in Iran, after which he was appointed by Chancellor Katehi as UC Davis Liaison to Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, where he remains an Adjunct Professor.
He is interviewed by his friend and colleague, Barry Klein, Professor Emeritus of Physics after serving UC Davis since 1992 as Professor and Chair of Physics, as Vice Provost, and as Vice Chancellor of Research.
