Nassibeh Hosseini

 

Degree Information:

Ph.D., Mechanical Engineering, NDSU 2015.

Current Research:

Nassibeh is currently working on the development of novel switchable adhesives mimicking gecko adhesion. Synthetic polymeric gecko-inspired dry adhesives have been fabricated from polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) in this study.  She is also looking into some possible applications of this technology and how it could fit into the marketplace.

Damith Rozairo

Degree Information:

Candidate for Ph.D. Materials and Nanotechnology

B.Sc., Physics with a minor in mathematics, Minnesota State University Moorhead, 2009.

Current Research:

Damith is currently working on his dissertation which examines the physics of block copolymers in emulsion droplets. His work includes imaging microscopic to macroscopic scale emulsion droplets using a confocal microscope and exploits geometry to determine mechanical response (interfacial energies). His future goals consist of work with micropipette tensiometry and block copolymer double-emulsions.
