David Spiciarich is a graduate student in Chemistry at UC Berkeley and also a “Lindau Fellow.” He was nominated in 2012 to represent the US at the annual meeting of Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany, along with a selected group of graduate students.

Spiciarich spent a week interacting with Nobel Laureates from his field, an experience he defines as unique and “very exciting.” “Being a student at UC Berkeley I felt very competitive for an opportunity like this,” he said. “There are really cool opportunities out there. You simply have to look for them and apply for them.”
