When Martin Harmer, Alcoa Foundation Professor of Material Science and Engineering, isn’t driving a revolution at the intersection of AI and electron microscopy, you may find him fishing hundreds of miles offshore or practicing his latest slight-of-hand trick. Join President Simon as he uncovers where Martin gets his ideas and how he puts the magic into engineering, literally and figuratively.

After the episode, Martin shares what it’s like teaching remotely from his boat, where he found himself stranded after COVID-19 shut down the country.


GO Getters put ideas into action, creating change that has impact on our communities and our world. Lehigh President John D. Simon ’19P hosts straight-up, no-nonsense conversations with leaders on the forefront of change — within and beyond the university — who are dedicated to bringing direction to a dream.
