Dr. Eric W. Davis received his Ph.D. in astrophysics at the University of Arizona in 1991. His research specializations include breakthrough propulsion physics, general relativity and quantum field theories, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, spacecraft exploration of the outer solar system, and space mission engineering. Dr. Davis is a Research Physicist at the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin. He is also the CEO/Chief Scientist of Warp Drive Metrics, providing contract services to the Air Force Research Laboratory, the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, and the NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts. He is also a technical contributor and consultant to the NASA Breakthrough Propulsion Physics Program. His professional experience includes directing aerospace phenomenology research at Bigelow Aerospace Co./NIDS (1996-2002); member of the sciences-mathematics faculty at the University of Maryland University College stationed at the 8th Fighter Wing in Kunsan, South Korea (1995-96), associate faculty at Pima College (1991-1995) and at the Community College of Southern Nevada (2004); research associate at the Voyager 1 & 2 Spacecraft Ultraviolet Spectrometer Experiment Lab, Lunar & Planetary Laboratory, University of Arizona (1985-91) and research assistant at the Infrared Astronomical Satellite Lab, Steward Observatory, University of Arizona (1984-85). Dr. Davis authored an award winning paper on the quantum vacuum zero-point energy (Space Technology & Applications Int’l Forum 2007), and authored several papers and reports on traversable wormholes, warp drives, laser propulsion, teleportation physics, advanced propulsion concepts, and contact with extraterrestrial visitors. He has been twice recognized by the American Institute of Aeronautics & Astronautics for outstanding contributions to national defense and space public policy, and received recognition from the State of Arizona Economic Conversion Council for contributions to commercial conversion of small-medium space and defense businesses in Arizona. Dr. Davis is a Fellow of the British Interplanetary Society, Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics & Astronautics, member of the New York Academy of Sciences, and member of the American Astronomical Society.
