11: Brian Korgel - Even the simple things are hard

Brian Korgel from the University of Texas at Austin joins the podcast to reminisce about nano's past and ponder its future. We chat about his formative years as a graduate student, the giants whose shoulders he has stood upon, and a (long forgotten) time when it was necessary to convince your colleagues of the value of nanoscience. We also discuss a future where nanomaterials have found their place in solar energy technologies and one where we have far better control of the interface between materials and biology.
