Bassam Shakhashiri is an emeritus professor of Chemistry at UW-Madison, well known for his public presentations on science. He’s also an expert on the Periodic Table of the Elements, as you may remember from a Lake Effect chatseveral years ago.

He’s big, too, on science and the arts, science literacy, and this year—science and politics.

Listen to WUWM’s Chuck Quirmbach interview with Prof. Shakhashiri, which began with any updates in the Table of Elements.

Prof. Shakhashiri will be lecturing on The Joy of Science and the Arts on April 6 at UW-Madison. There is a free webcast of the event.
