Michael Falk is vice dean for undergraduate education at the Whiting School of Engineering and is a professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, with a secondary appointment in Mechanical Engineering. His research focuses on computational materials science, structural materials, and optoelectronic and magnetic materials. He came to the Johns Hopkins University in 2008. He received his doctorate in 1998 from the University of California Santa Barbara in 1998, and both his bachelor’s (physics, 1990) and his master’s (1991, computer science) at the Johns Hopkins University. He served as the PI on STEM Achievement in Baltimore Elementary Schools (SABES), a $7.4 million National Science Foundation-funded project aimed at improving science, technology, engineering, and math education in Baltimore public schools. Falk also serves on the Diversity Leadership Council and played an active role in encouraging the university to establish an office of LGBTQ Life.
