Short CV

Ph.D. Inorganic Chemistry (2000)

Prof. Visser started as a junior lecturer in 1991 and has been a loyal servant of the UFS since.  He currently holds a position of professor in Inorganic Chemistry and when he is not dazzling students with the wonders of chemistry he likes to spend time with his family, play golf, read and try his hand at creative writing.  He has more than 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals.
