After receiving his academic degrees, David Dietz joined the Federal government where he served in several physics research and research leadership positions as Principal Research Physicist and Leader of the High Power Microwave Modeling & Simulation Team at the Air Force Research Laboratory in Albuquerque, NM. He then left the Federal service to join the UNM ECE Department .
Concurrently with his government tenure he was a Guest Scientist at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for 3 years and at the Los Alamos National Laboratory for 5 years while also teaching as an adjunct faculty member at UNM at various times in the ECE, mathematics and physics departments. He has authored/co-authored over 95 refereed journal articles, technical reports, and meeting papers in the areas of statistical mechanics, radiation transport, plasma physics, electrodynamics, computational physics and electromagnetics. He is also a consultant in private industry.
Dr. Dietz's current interests comprise mathematics applied to engineering problems including network behavior, complex system behavior, electromagnetics, and uncertainty quantification in computer codes. He is a member of the American Mathematical Society, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and the American Physical Society.
