Profiles in "Nanoscience" Expertise Area

  • David Wright's primary expertise is experimentation with potentially hazardous substances under extreme conditions to make and modify advanced materials for fundamental research and applied development.
  • Treacy received his PhD in physics from Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge in 1979. His interests are: modeling hypothetical zeolite frameworks; the study of disordered materials by Fluctuation Microscopy.
  • Venables retired from his tenured post in 2008. He was rehired increasingly part-time in connection with the PSM in Nanoscience, for which he is the founding program director.
  • Director of the LeRoy Eyring Center for Solid State Science. Research interests include phase transformation nanostructure, interfaces in solids, and high resolution analytical electron microscopy.
  • Jeff Yarger primary research interests are in biophysical chemistry, nano-materials and the general field of disordered or amorphous materials.
  • Ponce's current interest is in the understanding of the materials properties of III-V nitrides, and their correlation to growth and to device performance for solid state lighting.
  • Peng's expertise is in computational physics (first principles density-functional theory calculations) and material science.
  • Seo's research interests focus on design of new synthetic strategies, and synthesis, characterization, and applications of new inorganic porous materials.
  • Ros is a faculty member of SMS and the Center for Applied Structural Discovery at ASU's Biodesign Institute. Her current research interests include bioanlalytics in the micro- and nanoenvironment.
  • The Milton D. Glick Distinguished Professor in Chemistry and Biochemistry and director of the Center for Molecular Design and Biomimetics in the Biodesign Institute at ASU.
