Professor Barber received a B.S. degree in Physics from Davidson College in 1984. In 1990, he received a Ph.D. at the University of Maryland, College Park, where he studied superconductivity in disordered films. After graduate school, he continued this work as a post-doctoral researcher at UC San Diego, and then spent two more years as a post-doctoral fellow in oceanography studying air-sea interactions at the University of Delaware. Since coming to Santa Clara in 1995, Professor Barber has built a laboratory where has studied superconductivity and other low temperature phenomena. Currently he is collaborating with Professors McNelis and Adalsteinsson in Chemistry and Biochemistry to investigate improving the stability of polymer solar cells.
