Assistant Professor Oded Rabin.

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is pleased to welcome its newest faculty member, Assistant Professor Oded Rabin. Rabin will hold a joint appointment with the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP).

Rabin received his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2004. His research program focuses on nanoscale structures and their interaction with their chemical and physical environment. His Materials and Interface Nanotechnology Lab will develop synthetic strategies to make useful nanoparticles, nanowires, and nano-structured thin films.

Rabin’s research interests include chemical sensing and molecule-nanoparticle interactions; advanced materials for thermoelectric energy generation; applications of nanoparticles as biomarkers for imaging, diagnosis, and repair; porous anodic alumina scaffolds; and molecular and nanoparticle transport in microfluidic devices.

Before joining the Clark School, Rabin held postdoctoral positions with the Harvard Medical School at Massachusetts General Hospital, and with the University of California, Berkeley.
