He has been recognized with a variety of research and teaching awards, including: Izatt-Christensen Award in Supramolecular Chemistry, The Czarnik Award, the ACS Edward Leete Award, the Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award, Dreyfus Teacher Scholar Award, and the Jean Holliday Award. He is a co-author on the textbook “Modern Physical Organic Chemistry.”
Anslyn received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from California State University Northridge and his doctorate in organic chemistry at the California Institute of Technology. He was a National Science Foundation post-doctoral fellow at Columbia University between 1987 and 1989, starting his independent career at UT Austin in 1989.
The lecture begins at 6 p.m. in Churchill Haines 118. It is free and open to the public.
