Kuwata'’s research uses computational chemistry to unravel the mechanisms of
reactions in the atmosphere, with a particular interest in studying the role of ozone in
the production of OH radicals. 

He is a physical and analytical chemist with a background in laser spectroscopy and
atmospheric chemistry. 

EDUCATION: B.S., Harvey Mudd College Ph.D., California Institute of Technology 

Kuwata has been teaching at Macalester since 2000.
