Science and Engineering can find solutions to problems large and small—and the solution always comes with unexpected consequences, hopefully with solutions of their own. Professor Gruebele will discuss a few topics of current interest, ranging from specialization in science, to grand discoveries waiting to happen, to how making and using fossil fuels better is a big part of the equation, or the fundamental-applied pendulum that is currently swinging ‘applied.'
