Collin J. Wilkinson, PhD, did his graduate degree with John Mauro at the Pennsylvania State University preceded by a physics undergraduate degree at Coe College working with Ugur Akgun and Steve Feller. His graduate thesis concluded in 2021 with the title ‘Adventures in high dimensions: Understanding glass for the 21st century’, focused on using a combination of machine learning, topological models, and energy landscapes to understand glass compositions and their effect on relaxation and crystallization. He is currently working at a start-up company using AI to improve glass recycling in the United States.
