Aaron Landerville is an applied physicist with expertise in theory/modeling and computational techniques. He received his PhD in applied physics from the University of South Florida in 2014 and has since worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the materials simulation laboratory, and as an adjunct professor, both at USF. He was a recipient of several fellowships, the Distinguished Graduate Achievement Award, and was selected to attend the 62nd Lindau Meeting of Nobel Laureates. He also served as senior coordinator for the National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates at USF, and as an organizer for the 2015 Conference of the American Physical Society Shock Compression of Condensed Matter Topical Group. He has studied a wide range of topics from quantum mechanical characterization of molecular crystals to pharmokinetics and drug delivery for chemotherapy. In his brief time with the mathematical oncology department at Moffitt Cancer Research Center, he was exposed to the cutting edge of cancer research, and became aware of the many problems that plague detection and treatment of aggressive cancers. As such he has developed an interested in the medical potential of cannabinoids and terpenoids to treat a myriad of diseases, and is currently working on methods to identify, isolate, and standardize the 500+ compounds in cannabis for future clinical and commercial applications.
