Fall 2017 Office Hours: Mon & Wed 10 - 11am @ GSH
ACADEMIC AREAS: Dynamics of Small Molecules, Entangled Quantum Systems, Quantum Thermodynamics, Far-from-Equilibrium Biological Kinetics
My goal especially in my Honors College Colloquia is to explore the most fundamental ideas possible in a serious way that is accessible to students of all backgrounds, not just science majors. I try to bring out the wonder in the subjects I teach, while presenting technical material in an accessible way to non-specialists. In class I use a mixed lecture-discussion-seminar format. There are problems to work and written essays, to bring out both technical and conceptual aspects.
PhD: Physical Chemistry, University of Chicago, 1977
BS: Chemistry, University of Chicago, 1971
Research Interests & Current Projects
My research is in dynamics of small molecules, entangled quantum systems, quantum thermodynamics, and far-from-equilibrium biological kinetics.
