John Seinfeld, Louis E. Nohl Professor in the Divisions of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and Applied Science at the California Institute of Technology

Description: Professor Seinfeld is widely acknowledged for his research on the chemistry and physics of the atmosphere. Through both experimental and theoretical studies, he has made numerous contributions to the knowledge of the chemistry of the urban atmosphere, the formation, growth, and dynamics of atmospheric aerosols, and the role of aerosols in climate. He is considered one of the founders of the field of mathematical modeling of the atmosphere, work that eventually became written into the United States Clear Air Act. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

About the Speaker(s): John H. Seinfeld is the Louis E. Nohl Professor in the Divisions of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and Applied Science at the California Institute of Technology. He is a graduate of the University of Rochester, where he received a B.S. degree in chemical engineering, and of Princeton University, where he received a Ph.D. in chemical engineering. He joined the faculty of the California Institute of Technology in 1967.

Host(s): School of Engineering, Department of Chemical Engineering
