Dr. William Carl Linebergeris the E.U. Condon Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Fellow of JILA at the University of Colorado in Boulder. His research centers on the application of lasers to problems in chemical physics, especially those involving gas phase anions. He has won numerous awards such as the H. P. Broida Prize in Chemical Physics and the Earl K. Plyler Prize from the American Physical Society. He received the Bomem-Michelson Prize and the William F. Meggers Prize from the Optical Society of America.


He has served on many advisory committees, chairing the NSF Advisory Committee for Mathematical and Physical Sciences, the National Research Council Commission on Physical Sciences, Mathematics and Applications, and the Department of Energy Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee. In 2011, he was nominated by President Obama for Membership on the National Science Board, and was subsequently confirmed by the US Senate. He serves as a Member of the Executive Committee and Chair of the Subcommittee on Facilities of NSB.
