Richard Zare - Marguerite Blake Wilbur Professor in Natural Science and Professor of Chemistry and (by courtesy) of Physics

Seed Grant Committee Member, Scientific Leadership Council Member, Clark Center Faculty

A pioneer in the use of lasers to study chemical reactions at the molecular level, Dr. Zare pursues diverse theoretical and experimental interests in physical chemistry and nanoscale chemical analysis. The Zarelab has made a broad impact in analytic chemistry with development of laser-induced fluorescence to study reaction dynamics, and seminal contributions to understanding of molecular collision processes. The group continues to invent tools and measurement techniques to study phenomena from reaction in microdroplets to drug delivery.
