Nanocrystal-based dyads for solar to electric energy conversion
Dave is Professor and Chair of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh. His research program uses methods of spectroscopy, electro- chemistry, and microscopy to investigate primary processes in the condensed phase which includes liquids, solids, and liquid/solid interfaces. Current themes of his research are focused on the understanding of electron transfer reactions, electron transport in supramolecular structures, and nanophotonics. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, was a visiting Professor at the Weizmann Institute, and is recipient of the Chancellor's Distinguished Research Award. Dave earned his B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Cincinnati, his Ph.D., also in Chemistry, from the University of Chicago, and was post doctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley.
