How I Became a Non-Chemist
Date: Saturday, April 21st
Time: 10:30 am
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Ken Menningen, UW Stevens Point
Abstract: Some scientists direct their careers with laser focus to answer a small set of questions. Others wander around like a trapped photon. I will tell the story about how a plasma physicist ended up studying combustion chemistry, and how the student he trained learned about growing diamonds, thermophoresis, synchrotrons, radiation trapping, photoelectrochemical water splitting, and anticrepuscular rays.
