Biography

Teresa Williams holds a Ph.D. in Applied Science and Technology (2017) from the College of Engineering at UC Berkeley and a B.S. in Chemistry (2001) from UC Davis. Her doctoral work investigated interactions and assemblies of polymeric materials and colloidal nanocrystals. As a member of the technical staff, Teresa is responsible for training users from the Organic Facility in scanning electron microscopy and collaborating on transmission electron microscopy projects. Her research is focused on the design and assembly of polymeric materials with inorganic nanocrystals into tunable, porous frameworks for energy related applications. Teresa is also responsible for the training and maintenance of the Organic Facility's MALDI, GC/MS, SEC's, microwave reactor, and glove boxes for synthesis and nanomaterials chemistry.
