The world’s only touring comedian with a Ph.D. from M.I.T., Pete has performed internationally as a comedian for over a decade, and taught Georgia Tech Chemical Engineers for over two decades. Pete has been an ACS member for 3 decades and has spoken at ACS meetings and chapters for almost that long. His research activities include the computer modeling of synthetic and biological macromolecules, and the use of humor to improve technical innovation, communication, and education (www.chbe.gatech.edu/faculty/ludovice). One of his National Science Foundation sponsored projects examines the use of humor in engineering education. He co-directs the Humor Genome Project (humorgenome.org) and the Geekapalooza Comedy Tour (pwp.gatech.edu/geekapalooza) at Georgia Tech. Pete also hosts a weekly radio show on science and technology whose motto is “Science, only funnier” (WREK-Atlanta, 91.1FM, insidetheblackbox.org), and a podcast on the intersection of science and the humanities (www.peteandcharlie.libsyn.com).
