Where do science and spirituality converge? How can we find contentment that satisfies our heart as well as our head? Dr. Anders Nilsson really believes that we can have a bright future ahead of us if we do the inner work necessary for change. By using ‘inner self-science and technology,’ we can create a world that is in alignment with our hearts. Join us as we explore the light within us, with Dr. Anders Nilsson.
About Guest Anders Nilsson PhD
Anders Nilsson PhD has engaged in award-winning fundamental research in physics and chemistry for decades. He is currently studying the fundamental properties and structure of liquid water and artificial photosynthesis.
Nilsson experienced a spiritual awakening in 1993 that completely changed his life and view of the world. The awakening was a result of an emotionally difficult life passage that led him to intense soul-searching, and ultimately to developing the Gentle Way of transformation. He has taught the Gentle Way in numerous workshops since 2000.
Born in Stockholm, Sweden, Nilsson finished his Master of Engineering degree at the Royal Institute of Technology in 1981 where he also participated in an international student exchange program studying his final year at the Imperial College in London. He received a PhD in Physics from Uppsala University, Sweden, in 1989 where he stayed on and became Professor in Physics in 1999. He was invited to UC Berkeley as a visiting scientist from 1994 through 1997. Then, in 2000, he became Professor of Photon Science at Stanford University. Currently, he is also Professor of Chemical Physics at Stockholm University and splits his time between Sweden and California.
Nilsson’s research has focused on the fundamental properties and structure of liquid water and chemical energy transformations on surfaces that are, for instance, related to artificial photosynthesis. He has authored or co-authored over 250 scientific papers in some of the most prominent journals such as Nature, Science, the Proceedings of the National Academy, Physical Review Letters and the Journal of American Chemical Society. In 2004, his work on water was selected by Science Magazine as one of the top ten scientific breakthroughs of the year. He will appear as one of the scientists in the episode about the oceans in the TV series “Through the Wormhole by Morgan Freeman” in the summer of 2014.
