Chemists are successful with the manipulation of complicated molecular systems, whereas to a physicist, even simple molecules can seem complex. Physical chemists are blessed (or cursed) with a dual scientific personality. Hear an overview of work in my labs that attempts to address complex molecular systems but with a physical chemist’s keen eye toward finding the underlying simplicity. This lecture is for all chem students and will highlight the beautiful simplicity and fundamentals of physical chemistry!

Dr. Nesbitt did his UG studies in physics + chemistry at Harvard, during which he spent 1 year at the Max Planck Institute in Germany. He then taught secondary school science and math before entering the PhD program in chemical physics at the Univ. Colorado at Boulder. PSST … He’s recruiting for Grad Students in his lab!
