 About the speaker:

Emily Weiss is a Professor and the Dow Chemical Company Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Northwestern University, and a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, by courtesy. She is a co-thrust leader in the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) and the Center for Bio-Inspired Energy Science (CBES), and a co-PI of the Argonne-Northwestern Solar Energy Research Center (ANSER).

Emily’s group studies electronic processes at organic-inorganic interfaces within colloidal inorganic nanoparticles. The objectives of this research are to understand the mechanisms of conversion of energy from one class to another (light, heat, chemical potential, electrical potential) at interfaces, to understand the behavior of quantum confined systems far from equilibrium, and to design and synthesize nanostructures that are new combinations of organic and inorganic components.
