Materials chemist looking for a designer collaborator

Are you a Design student with an interest in science? Are you looking for a scientist to talk to? Materials chemist Greg Gregori wants to explore the role of design in science, and he is willing to collaborate on a critical design project. Greg’s approach to his work is creative and experimental and includes doing scientific experiments as party tricks, an idea rooted in his childhood desire to become a magician.

If that sounds like it would fit your work, you can contact Greg at his email address, Gregory.Gregori[@]matthey.com. This opportunity was sent to us by alumnas Lior Smith and Clara Nissim.
