19: Doug Natelson - Look, I'm a physicist, I have met people like Sheldon
Doug Natelson is a different kind of geek. He's an expert in the physics of nanoscale materials, but he’s also a world-class science communicator. Doug authors the blog Nanoscale Views, where he writes about a range of general interest and technical topics. We talk about his lab's studies of heating at the nanoscale, his love of blogging, and his recently published textbook on nanotechnology.Show details: • Hosted and edited by Michael Filler (@michaelfiller) • Recorded on September 1, 2016 • Show notes are available at http://www.fillerlab.com/nanovation/archive/19 • Submit feedback at http://www.fillerlab.com/nanovation/feedback
