Professor of Chemistry,
Alumni Research Scholar,
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Professor Andrew A. Gewirth received his A.B. from Princeton University in 1981 and his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1987. He joined the Illinois faculty in 1988 after postdoctoral work at the University of Texas, Austin. Research in his group focuses on the structure and reactivity of surfaces and interfaces.
Focuses on the structure and reactivity of surfaces and interfaces. Utilizes local probe microscopies in conjunction with electrochemical, computational, and spectroscopic methods.
