University of Houston, Houston, TX, United States 
Theoretical Chemistry, condensed matter physics
"Eric Bittner"

Bittner obtained his B.S. in chemistry and in physics from Valparaiso University in 1988. From 1988 to 1994 he worked with John C. Light at the University of Chicago and obtained his Ph.D. thesis in 1994 on Quantum Theories of Energy Exchange at the Gas-Surface Interface.
Subsequently, he worked at the University of Texas at Austin until 1996 as Postdoctoral Fellow of the National Science Foundation, with Peter J. Rossky as his mentor. He was visiting scholar at Stanford University from 1995 to 1997, with Hans C. Andersen as his mentor.

In 1997 he joined the University of Houston as assistant professor of theoretical chemistry, where he became associate professor of theoretical chemistry in 2003. In summer of 2001, he worked as visiting faculty at the Center for Non-Linear Studies at Los Alamos National Lab.

Since 2009, Bittner is John and Rebecca Moores Distinguished Professor of chemical physics at the University of Houston.
