Diptarka Hait comes to Stanford from the University of California, Berkeley, where he earned a doctorate in physical chemistry. His interests lie in computational quantum chemistry, and he has conducted research into how X-rays can be used to study chemical transformations. His graduate work was highly productive, leading to more than 20 publications. As a Science Fellow, Hait aims to use the tools of physics and mathematics to advance understanding of photocatalysts and chemistry in general. He also enjoys sharing his love of science as a teacher and mentor to younger scientists.
