Eric Davis, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biology and Chemistry at Azusa Pacific University. He started at APU in 2015 following three years on faculty with Fresno Pacific University. He earned his Ph.D. under Dr. Herbert Hill at Washington State University in the field of Analytical, Environmental, and Radiochemistry; studying the design and implementation of Ion Mobility Spectrometry. He comes to APU with research interests continuing in the field of IMS instrument and method development; specifically the further development of voltage-sweep IMS methods and an NSF-funded project investigating the efficacy of Radiative Ion-Ion Neutralization as a novel detector for atmospheric-pressure, gas-phase ions. His teaching interests envelope the whole of analytical chemistry, and he regularly teaches general chemistry (CHEM 151/152), Quantitative Analysis (CHEM 300/310), and instrumental analysis (CHEM 320/330), with topical courses in the intersections of chemistry, radiochemistry, and the environment. Eric and his wife live in Fontana with their three boys and one girl, where they actively serve at Summit Bible Church and enjoy hiking, camping, and fishing as a family.
