Charles Musgrave (Ms '90, PhD '94)

After earning my Ph.D. in Materials Science in 1994 with Bill Goddard and completing a postdoc at MIT, I started my academic career as an assistant professor at Stanford in a joint appointment between Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering. After 11 years at Stanford I moved to the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder where I am now the department chair and continue my research using quantum chemical calculations to design and investigate new materials and molecules for various engineering applications. I have many fond memories of my years at Caltech, especially of my Ph.D. advisor, who I would like to wish Happy Birthday on the occasion of his 80th birthday this March. Happy birthday Bill!
