December 09, 2019

Latha Venkataraman, Lawrence Gussman Professor of Applied Physics and Professor of Chemistry at Columbia University, presented at the 9th International Conference on Low Dimensional Structures and Devices (LDSD), held in the southern Chilean city of Puerto Varas at the beginning of December.

Venkataraman’s presentation, “Bonding, Catalysis, and Electrochemistry Probed Through Single-Molecule Measurements,” was based on her research.

“Unfortunately, I’m in Chile this time on a very short visit but hope to come back to Santiago at a future date to work with my collaborator here, Ingrid Ponce Hormazabal, at the School of Chemistry and Biology at Universidad de Santiago de Chile. She has visited my lab a few times and we have helped her build a scanning tunneling microscope,” Venkataraman said.
