Have you ever heard of graphene? Graphene is a very versatile material developed by Professor Andre Geim, Langworthy Professor and director of the Manchester Centre for Mesoscience and Nanotechnology at the University of Manchester, UK, and winner of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. The last time that Professor Geim appeared on the show, he explained what graphene is used for and its many applications in daily life. What can Professor Geim tell us today? Is graphene fulfilling its potential? And why is there a gap between academia and industry? Find out on this week's episode of the Goldstein on Gelt show.
In the second half of tonight's show, we meet another Nobel Prize winner. Professor Alvin Roth, a professor of economics at Stanford University, won the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences in 2012 for his work on market design. What does market design mean, and how are his matching programs applied to kidney donation, getting married, and students choosing residency programs? Listen to this great interview to learn more.
