Functional materials expert Mohammad Malakooti joins NanoES

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.
