Michael A. Bevan
Director of Graduate Studies
Ph.D. Carnegie Mellon University (’99)
- Colloidal Interactions, Dynamics, Assembly
- Nanoparticle Materials and Devices
- Biomacromolecular Interactions
Dr. Bevan 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. He serves as the Director of Graduate Studies for ChemBE.
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/soft matter applications (e.g. coatings, ceramics, consumer products) and emerging nanotechnologies involving particle based materials (e.g. metamaterials, drug delivery) and devices (e.g. antennas, diagnostics). Their approach involves the development of an integrated suite of advanced microscopy and computer simulation tools to design, control, and optimize colloidal interactions in advanced material, environmental, and biomedical applications.
