James Robert Doyle
James Doyle obtained his B.S. in Physics from the University of Michigan-Dearborn in 1981 and received his Ph.D in Physics from the University of Colorado in 1989. After a three year post-doctoral appointment in materials science at the University of Illinois, he became an assistant professor at Macalester College in St. Paul Minnesota in 1992, advancing to associate professor in 1999 and full professor in 2005. He has published widely in thin film materials science as well as plasma physics and chemistry, and has recently started research programs in electrical grid modelling with storage and the materials science of battery and supercapacitor electrodes. He is also involved in local community efforts to combat climate change and fossil fuel dependency.
