Please congratulate the two DMSE faculty who have been awarded tenure this year:
Alfredo Alexander-Katz, the Walter Henry Gale (1929) Career Development Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. His research combines theory and simulations to develop a deep understanding of soft-materials systems, with a focus on fundamentally understanding the self-assembly and dynamics of soft materials for novel applications in fields such as medicine, biology, engineering, physics, and chemistry.
Geoffrey Beach, the Class of 1958 Career Development Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. He studies the behavior of magnetic — or “spintronic” — materials and structures, with an interest in new spin-based concepts in data storage, computing, and nanomedicine, and the fundamental materials properties to enable these technologies. His activities include materials growth, nanoscale patterning, advanced instrumentation development, and a variety of characterization techniques supported by numerical simulations.
