Lewis to deliver Environmental Prize Lectures, Nov. 5-7

The Princeton Environmental Institute and the Princeton University Press have invited Nathan Lewis of the California Institute of Technology to give the 2003 Environmental Prize Lectures.

Lewis, the George Argyros Professor of Chemistry at Caltech, will deliver three lectures on sustainable energy development Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Nov. 5-7. The talks are scheduled for 8 p.m. at McDonnell A01 and are free and open to the public.

The lectures are titled "Strategies for Development of Globally Sustainable Energy," "Climate Change Constraints on Carbon-Based Energy Consumption: Energy Policy Formulation in the Face of Technical Uncertainty" and "Improving on Photosynthesis: Technological Approaches to Cost-Effective, Scaleable Carbon-Neutral Energy."

Lewis has been a faculty member at Caltech since 1988 and was at Stanford University from 1981 to 1988. His research interests include the light-induced movement of electrons in metals and organic materials, a field of study that is important for improving electricity-producing solar cells.

Further details about the lectures are available online .
