James Freericks, Professor of Physics, was trained as an undergraduate at Princeton University (A.B. 1985) and as a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley (MA 1987, Ph.D. 1991). He did postdoctoral fellowships at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara (1991--93) and at the University of California, Davis (1993--94). His work ranges from mathematical physics, to developing computational methods for the many-body problem, to working on "ab initio" calculations in real materials and recently has branched off into cold atom physics and quantum simulation. He has been awarded the Kusaka Memorial Prize in Physics from Princeton University (1985), the Oak Ridge Associated Universities, Junior Faculty Enhancement Award (1995), the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Program award (1996), the Georgetown University Distinguished Achievement in Research award (2007), the Alpha Sigma Nu National Book Award for the Natural Sciences (2009), and an Outstanding Referee prize from the American Physical Society (2013). He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and is Treasurer/Secretary of the Division of Computational Physics. In 2010, he was named the inaugural holder of the McDevitt Chair in Physics at Georgetown.
