Due to overwhelming interest, this event has been moved to Shriver Hall. For those unable to attend, this lecture will be live streamed on Johns Hopkins University’s Ustream channel.
Steven Chu, the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of physics and professor of molecular and cellular physiology at Stanford University, will deliver the Carolyn and Edward Wenk, Jr. Lecture in Technology and Public Policy on Tuesday, September 6.
In a talk titled “Climate Change and a Low-Cost Path to Clean Energy,” Chu will describe new data on climate change, the rapidly changing energy landscape, and the potential and challenges in the transition to clean energy sources.
Chu was awarded the 1997 Nobel Prize in Physics for his contributions to laser cooling and atom trapping. He was the first scientist to hold a White House Cabinet position, serving as the 12th U.S. Secretary of Energy from January 2009 to April 2013.Click here to RSVP
