Natural sources, such as plants, fungi and microbes, have historically provided compounds with potent pharmaceutical properties. While it can be challenging to build complex natural products in a lab using existing chemistry methods, Nature has perfected these biosynthetic pathways. The work described leverages the power of Natures tools for building complex molecules to synthesize novel... More >

Recent reports on dramatically accelerated organic reactions at water-hydrophobe interfaces, viz. oil-water emulsions, the air-water interface, and sprays comprising water microdroplets, have sparked much interest. While the causative role of interfaces has been invoked in all of these scenarios, detailed mechanistic insights remain elusive. Towards understanding the real meaning of various... More >
Seminar 281, International Trade and Finance: Sorting, Endogenous Amenities and Spatial Inequality in Cities
Seminar | October 15 | 4-5:30 p.m. | 597 Evans Hall
Matthias hoelsztein, UC Berkeley
Abstract: In this paper, I characterize and quantify a new economic force underlying observed spatial inequality in cities that is based on simultaneous sorting of skill groups and firms across space. In contrast to recent theoretical and empirical work emphasizing the role of reduced form spillovers to the local skill composition, spatial sorting in my model is driven by variation in localized,...
