The UW’s Biofabrication Center, a unique facility located in the Nanoengineering and Sciences building, is partnering with Agilent Technologies in pursuit of automated, reproducible research.
We are excited to welcome Mohammad Malakooti to UW as an assistant professor in mechanical engineering and NanoES faculty member. The Mechanical Engineering department and NanoES partnered to help bring Malakooti to UW from Carnegie Mellon University where he was a research scientist studying stretchable electronics and flexible devices for wearable computing and human-computer interactions. At UW, Malakooti is developing new methodologies to synthesize and ultimately manufacture stable, mechanically robust, and functional nanomaterials that can be integrated into durable macrostructures in ways that harness their unique nanoscale properties.
NanoES faculty member Eric Klavins and his team are engineering a toolbox of synthetic biological parts to create new living systems. The Klavins research group maintains lab and office space on the third floor of the NanoES building.
