Welcome from the Lab Director
Department of Forest Biomaterials, Campus Box 8005 Department of Chemistry, Campus Box 8204
Lucian A. Lucia received his Ph.D. from the University of Florida in physical organic chemistry for the fundamental study of simulated electron/energy transfer pathways associated with photosynthesis.
He spent approximately two years studying photoreactive polymers, photoinduced gelation phenomena, novel supramolecular behavior in microheterogeneous systems (vesicles, monolayers) as a postdoctoral fellow at the NSF Center for Photoinduced Charge Transfer at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY.
The Center funded an extended teaching & research appointment for Dr. Lucia at Tokyo Metropolitan University near Tokyo, Japan, from where he accepted an Assistant Professorship from the Institute of Paper Science and Technology at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta, Georgia.
He was faculty at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Institute of Paper Science and Technology) from which time he accepted a full-time graduate faculty appointment at North Carolina State University.
