# R. D. Diehl

Renee D. Diehl is a Professor of Physics at The Pennsylvania State University. She received a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Washington in 1982, and was a postdoctoral research assistant (1982–1983) and lecturer (1983–1990) at the University of Liverpool, UK, before moving to The Pennsylvania State University in 1990. Her research involves studying the structures and dynamics of single-crystal surfaces and adsorption on surfaces, and most recently has focused on the study of quasicrystalline surfaces and adsorbed large molecules such as ${\text{C}}_{60}$.
