Dr. Bevan serves as the Director of Graduate Studies for ChemBE. He received his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University in 1999, and a B.S. in both Chemical Engineering and Chemistry from Lehigh University in 1994.
His lab’s research focuses on measuring and manipulating nanoparticle and biomolecular interactions, dynamics, and structures in interfacial and confined systems. Their findings have direct relevance to traditional complex fluid applications (e.g. coatings and ceramics) and emerging nanotechnologies related to the operation of devices (e.g. diagnostics, microfluidics) and fabrication (e.g. photonic, biomimetic). Their approach involves the development of an integrated suite of advanced microscopy and simulation tools to design, control, and optimize particle based materials and devices.
