... He constructed quantitative theoretical models of evolving massive stars and showed that the ejecta produce a good fit to the abundance of heavy elements in the galaxy. His research interests include nuclear astrophysics, formation of neutron stars and black holes, high-performance computers, theoretical physics, hydrodynamics, thermonuclear burning, stellar evolution, computer graphics, and computer modeling.

... Erickson III is a senior research staff member and director of climate and carbon research in the Center for Computational Sciences at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He is also an adjunct professor in the Division of Earth and Ocean Sciences, Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences, Duke University.

... His r ­ esearch interests include theoretical studies of dynamical processes in cosmology and galaxy formation and galaxy evolution, numerical simulations of stellar dynamical and hydrodynamical systems, and investigations of the physics of compact objects, particularly neutron stars and the interplay between thermal and magnetic processes in strongly magnetized neutron stars.

... He collaborated on the first stages of the Human Genome Project and established the first federal programs in bioinformatics and computational biology. As associate vice chancellor, he is also taking the lead in a variety of biotechnology and computational biology projects, including centers for structural genomics, bioinformatics, cell signaling, biomimetic materials, and computation science/distributed computing.
