Herschel A. Rabitz
Herschel Rabitz graduated from Harvard University in 1970, with a Ph.d degree in Chemical Physics. This was followed by post-doctorate work at the University of Wisconsin. In 1971, Professor Rabitz joined the faculty of the Department of Chemistry at Princeton University, and in 1993, became Department's Chairman. He is also an affiliated member of Princeton's Program in Applied and Computational Mathematic s. Professor Rabitz's research interests lie mainly at the interface of chemistry, physics and engineering, with principal area of focus including molecular dynamics, chemical kinematics, and optical interactions with matter. An overriding theme throughout his research is the emphasis on molecular scale system analysis. Professor Rabitz has over 400 publications in the general area of chemical physics.
