Joe Shapter speaks to the Chemistry students

Joe Shapter is the Dean of School in the School of Chemical and Physical Sciences, and he presented a special workshop to the SMAF Chemistry students this week. 

Joe has a passion for teaching and this was evident when he gave a very informative and highly engaging presentation about environmental chemistry.

He initially asked the students to list the top ten problems facing the world and then showed how these were inter-related. Joe discussed some of his research into solar cell development and carbon nanotubes and how these could be used as part of the solution to some of the major issues facing the world today. The students asked lots of very thoughtful and sophisticated questions.
