Dr. Matthew F. Ware

Dr. Matthew F. Ware is a native of Sugartown, LA. He is a 1975 physics graduate of Grambling State University. Dr. Ware’s expertise is in the area of magnetic properties of condensed matter. He has published research in condensed matter, atmospheric science, and bioelectromagnetics. Dr. Ware’s publications include the first report of superconductivity in melt-grown Y-Ba-Cu high-Tc superconductors. He serves as Grambling State University’s campus director of LaSPACE, Louisiana’s Space Grant Consortium and PACER, a Louisiana State University-led consortium funded by the National Science Foundation, which supports high-altitude balloon research at minority institutions. Dr. Ware is also the campus director for the Joint Faculty Appointment Program in the Physics partnership with neighboring Louisiana Tech University.
