Dr. Hendricks’ is an Assistant Professor in Computer Science and Information Systems at the University of Wisconsin River Falls. He completed his Ph.D in Computer Science at the University of Arkansas and his MA in Mathematics at the University of Texas. His research interests are two-fold. First, he is interested in the theoretical modeling of nanoparticles with the goal of understanding systems in which simple local interactions lead to complex global behaviors and/or structures. Studying such systems may not only contribute to a better understanding of complexities that arise in nature but also aid in the development of nanotechnologies. Secondly, he is interested in the computational modeling of nanoparticles. With the help of his collaborators, he is working to develop software capable of simulating the molecular dynamics of DNA-functionalized nanoparticles building blocks.
