Education[ edit ] Williams received his bachelor's degree from Princeton University in and on Martin Summerfield 's advise, he moved to California Institute of Technology to pursue his PhD, graduating it in under the supervision of Sol Pennerwith Richard Feynman on the thesis committee.
He was the fourth faculty member to be appointed, when Sol Penner founded the Engineering department in University of California, San Diego. In Januaryhe accepted the Robert H.
Williams also served as an adjunct Professor at Yale University for one month of each year starting in and culminating after ten years.
He served as a department chair at UCSD for four years. He made seminal contributions to the combustion field for the past six decades and considered as one of the prominent scientist in combustion.
Though Activation Energy Asymptotics were known to Russian scientists forty years ago, it was Williams call in in Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics  which made the western scientific community to start using the analysis.
