Bill Mitchell, Ph.D. AEØEE
University of Minnesota
Bill was first licensed in 2012 as AG6RB while in graduate school at the University of California, Berkeley. After finishing his PhD in 2014, he relocated to Minnesota and acquired his current callsign, AEØEE. Bill was part of a mini-expedition to North Dakota in August, 2014 to activate W1AW/Ø. He is most often found on CW, but also enjoys digital modes and SSB.
When not on the radio, Bill enjoys doing and teaching science. He holds a BA in chemistry from Carleton College, and a PhD in Chemistry from UC Berkeley. While his primary focus is physical and analytical chemistry, his research has been broad, spanning organometallic synthesis, kinetics, polymers, 2-photon photochemistry, atmospheric chemistry and physics, geochemistry, and geology. His dissertation focused on high-precision uranium-lead dating.
