Andrew Kummel

Professor, Chemistry and Biology, UC San Diego

Andrew Kummel is Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UC San Diego. Originally from New York City, he earned a BS in Chemical Engineering from Yale University, as well as an MS in Chemical Engineering and PhD in Chemistry from Stanford University. He is the Co-Principal Investigator for Cancer Researchers in Nanotechnology (CRIN) and Co-Investigator for the SDSE/UCSD Cancer Center Comprehensive Partnership. Kummel is also the Principal Investigator of the Kummel Research Group, which primarily investigates the chemistry of microelectronics procsesing using both room temperature (RT) and low temperature (LT) scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) & spectroscopy (STS), molecular beams, laser spectroscopy, impedance spectroscopy, and density funtional theory (DFT) calculations. Over the years, Andrew Kummel has directed a program called ET CURE at the Moores Cancer Center, supporting under-represented minority undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral asociates, and PhDs who are using new technologies in cancer research.
