Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Iowa State University 2017

Dedric's area of expertise is the investigation and optimization of clean energy conversion and efficient energy utilization through the use of state-of-the-art laser spectroscopy and imaging diagnostics, especially the development of ultrafast coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering for combustion and non-equilibrium.  Dedric has been honored with invited talks at invited talks at a Gordon Research Conference, at the Friederich-Alexander University in Erlangen-Nuremberg, the Los Alamos National Lab, and Sandia National Labs.
