Karl Sohlberg is an Associate Professor at the Department of Chemistry at Drexel University, Philadelphia, Pa, USA. His broad research area is theoretical and computational materials chemistry, with specific research programs in complex catalytic materials and molecular nanodevices. In the first area, he is especially interested in the theoretical description of the structure and surfaces of alumina-based catalytic materials. In the second area, his focus is on developing theoretical and computational methods for modeling interlocked macromolecular complexes. Before joining the Drexel faculty in 2000, he was an Oak Ridge Associated Universities Postdoctoral Fellow at Oak Ridge National Lab (Oak Ridge, Tenn, USA). Earlier, he held postdoctoral appointments at The Johns Hopkins University and Brigham Young University. He received his Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry from the University of Delaware under the direction of Krzysztof Szalewicz. At Drexel, he teaches chemical principles of engineering, molecular modeling and quantum chemistry, and math and computer skills for chemists.
