Melissa Hines, Chemistry and Chemical Biology, has long been captivated by nanoscale surfaces. Ever since her years as an undergraduate at MIT, Hines has dedicated her research to understanding various chemical reactions that take place at the surface of materials.
“It’s so different from the kinds of reactions that chemists are used to thinking about in a beaker or in a bulk material,” says Hines. “The fact that it’s at an interface adds not only a level of complexity, but a level of fascination.”
