John T. Fourkas is the Millard Alexander Professor and Associate Chair in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Maryland in College Park. Fourkas is also the Senior Editor for The Journal of Physical Chemistry A, B, and C, a position he’s held since 2002.
We recently caught up with Fourkas for a brief video interview inside a laser laboratory where his group works on using ultrafast nonlinear optics to study, image, and sculpt matter at the nano scale.
