Bold Aspirations Visitor and Lecture Series: Geraldine Richmond
Doorman, Barrier or Temptress: What Role Does a Water Surface Play in Gaseous Uptake?
Geraldine Richmond is the Richard M. and Patricia H. Noyes Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oregon. Richmond received her bachelor's degree in chemistry from Kansas State University (1975) and her Ph.D. in chemical physics at the University of California, Berkeley (1980) where she worked under the mentorship of Prof. George Pimentel. She has distinguished herself in her research using nonlinear optical spectroscopy and computational methods applied to understanding the chemistry that occurs at complex surfaces and interfaces that have relevance to important problems in energy production, environmental remediation, atmospheric chemistry and biomolecular surfaces. Over 160 publications have resulted from this research.
