Richard R. Lunt joined the faculty of Michigan State University in 2011 in the Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Physics Departments. He earned his B.Ch.E. from the University of Delaware, graduating with honors for his work on phase equilibria in superconducting-related perovskites under Douglas J. Buttrey.  He received his doctorate degree in chemical engineering from Princeton University while working as a researcher with Stephen Forrest at the University of Michigan (2006-2010) and Jay B. Benziger at Princeton. Just prior to arriving at MSU he worked as a postdoctoral associate at MIT. He has won a number of awards for his innovative research and is the inventor of over 15 U.S. patents, the majority of which have been licensed. He is a co-founder of Ubiquitous Energy Inc., which is commercializing a range of technologies that enable seamless deployment of light-harvesting functionality in the form of products and surfaces.
