Dr. Bernhardt L. Trout joins the ISN

The Institute for the Study of Nature is pleased to announce that Dr. Bernhardt L. Trout of MIT has joined its board of directors as well as its staff as Vice-President and Senior Fellow.

Dr. Trout is a Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at MIT, where he was an undergraduate before earning his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in 1996. He has had a longstanding interest in classical views and philosophical questions about nature and began to develop a skeptical attitude toward scientism and reductionism during his undergraduate days. Among his many impressive accomplishments, Bernhardt is Director, Novartis-MIT Center for Continuous Manufacturing and Co-Chair, Singapore-MIT Alliance, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Engineering, as well as the head of the MIT Molecular Engineering group. He was also the winner of the Ford Motor Company Young Investigator Award (2001), and the holder of the Henry L. and Grace Doherty Professorship for 2001-2003.

The staff and Fellows of the ISN look forward to much fruitful collaboration with Dr. Trout.
