Dr. Bedewy will start as an Assistant Professor at the University of Pittsburgh in September 2016. Currently, he is a Postdoctoral Associate in the Quantum Nanostructures and Nanofabrication (QNN) group, working with Professor Karl Berggren in the MIT Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE). Before that he was a Postdoctoral Associate at the MIT Laboratory for Manufacturing and Productivity (LMP), working in the Mechanosynthesis group (Professor A. John Hart’s group). In 2013, he completed his PhD degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where he worked with Professor A. John Hart on studying the population dynamics and the collective mechanochemical factors governing the growth and self-organization of filamentary nanostructures. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Design and Production Engineering (honors) and a Master’s degree in Mechanical Design, both from Cairo University (received in 2006 and 2009 respectively). Dr. Bedewy recently received the Silver Award from the Materials Research Society (MRS) in 2013 and the Richard and Eleanor Towner Prize for Distinguished Academic Achievement from the University of Michigan in 2014. His research interests include advanced manufacturing, nanoscale metrology and material characterization, chemical vapor deposition, self-assembly of hierarchical nanostructures, engineering of biomolecular systems, and precision engineering.
