MEAM Seminar: “Micro/Nanomanufacturing of 3D Functional Coatings via Self-Limiting Electrospray Deposition”

Recent developments in nanostructured materials have demonstrated myriad desirable properties ranging from optical and mechanical metamaterials to biomanipulative surfaces. To bring these properties from the lab to the commercial space will require innovative nanomanufacturing strategies focused on scalable and cost-effective techniques. My lab, the Hybrid Micro/Nanomanufacturing Laboratory, applies the manipulation of fundamental driving forces to […]

MSE Seminar: “Managing Intercultural Interactions in a Challenging Global Higher Education Landscape”

The rapidly diversifying face of colleges and universities in the United States including the University of Pennsylvania require that we are able to manage intercultural relationships from different backgrounds. We are all working in a multicultural institution, with students, faculty and staff from all over the world. This makes for a very diverse, vibrant community […]

MSE Seminar: “Scalable Multifunctional Nanoarchitectures for Energy Storage”

MSE Seminar: “Science and Applications of Topological Photonics across the Electromagnetic Spectrum”

The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Kosterlitz, Thouless, and Haldane for their pioneering theoretical work on the novel and counter-intuitive phases of matter that are now referred to as topological phases. Almost half a century after these researchers applied powerful mathematical techniques of topology to condensed matter systems, a new rapidly developing […]

MSE Special Seminar: “What They Don’t Teach You in School that You Need to Succeed in Life”

MSE Seminar: “A Polymer Brush Approach to Controlling Biological Binding to Surfaces”

Polymer brushes are a common feature in many biological surfaces. The ability to rapidly transform a substrate from a hard, structural material to a soft, hydrogel structure over the course of a few tens of nanometers makes polymer brushes elegant materials for tailoring the biology-materials interface. Polymer brushes, because of their surface confinement, are typically […]

MSE Seminar: “Topology and Quantum Matter: From Axions to Spintronics”

The confluence of fundamental symmetries and spin-orbit coupling is known to produce emergent electronic states in crystalline solids that are accurately described using the language of topology. This talk provides an overview of this relatively young field of research, showing how the synthesis and study of topological quantum matter yields a playground for both exotic […]
