Part of the 2018–2019 Fellows' Presentation Series

Lecture by Panče Naumov RI '19

Free and open to the public.


Panče Naumov’s research is in the domain of materials science, at the interface of solid-state chemistry, crystal engineering, and photochemistry, focusing on structural aspects of novel materials for efficient conversion of light, chemical, thermal, and mechanical energy in the solid state. It involves mechanistic studies and application of salient crystals, a new class of materials that can rapidly transduce energy into mechanical motion and work at a millisecond timescale. His most recent research is in the field of petroleomics (chemistry of oil).
