Joseph is a 3rd year Postdoctoral Research Fellow at UM, joint between the Kubarych Group in LSA Chemistry and the Ogilvie Group in LSA Physics. Joseph uses Infrared, Visible, and Ultraviolet laser pulses between 25 and 100 millionths of a billionth of a second long to put together a molecular movie of how chemical structures change in time and how they relax in energy. Some of his projects include studying inorganic catalysts that react carbon dioxide into renewable fuels, and studying polaritonic systems, where light can be used to tune a chemical reaction. Joseph graduated from USC and got his PhD at the University of Chicago, and is also a co-president of the UM Postdoctoral Association. You can find Joseph on twitter @OhYeahLasers and on linkedin.
