Richard R. Lunt joined the faculty of Michigan State University in August 2011 in the Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Physics Departments. He earned his B.Ch.E. in chemical engineering from the University of Delaware in 2004, 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 in June 2010 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 in the organic and nanostructured lab at MIT.  He has won a number of awards for his innovative research including the NSF CAREER Award, DuPont Young Investigator Award, Camille and Henry Dreyfus Mentor Award in Environmental Chemistry, GPEC Solar Innovation Award, Technology Reivew Top Innovator Under 35, and American Physical Society Ovshinksy Sustainable Energy Fellowship.  He is the inventor of over 15 U.S. patents, the majority of which have been licensed.  He has worked extensively in the field of organic and molecular crystalline growth, and excitonic electronics for over a decade and 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.
