Distinguished 2019 Lord Lecturer is Richard Eisenberg from the University of Rochester. His topic is: "A Promise and Challenge for a Carbon-free Energy Future: Artificial Photosynthesis and Solar Generation of Hydrogen."
Now in its 25th year, the Lord Lecture at Allegheny College is made possible by a grant from the Thomas Lord Charitable Trust. The annual event brings to northwestern Pennsylvania the nation’s most distinguished chemists and practitioners of related disciplines for residencies of up to one week.
The Lord lecturer’s principal public address is intended to engage many segments of the greater Erie community, from the basic and higher education sectors to the corporate and industrial spheres. In addition, the lecturer spends considerable time with Allegheny students and faculty members, formally and informally, sharing special expertise and perspective. As a consequence, undergraduates at Allegheny have gained broad exposure to emerging fields of inquiry.
