    David Kerlick received his B.S. in Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1970 and his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Princeton University in 1975, where he studied with John A. Wheeler and F.W. Hehl. His thesis work and first few postdoctoral years were spent analyzing the Einstein-Cartan theory of Gravity, a non-Riemannian extension of General Relativity. He also did work on the  weak-field, slow-motion approximation to General Relativity. In 1979, he began work in Computational Fluid Dynamics. and has published work on unsteady transonic flow; supersonic duct flow, and computational electromagnetics. Since 1986 he has worked in the areas of computational geometry, computer-aided geometric design, and computer graphics and visualization research. He is presently working on the application of local differential geometry to the extraction of topological information from flowfield data.
