Mark Allen is the Alfred Fitler Moore Professor of Electrical and Systems Engineering (ESE), and Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics (MEAM). He is also the Inaugural Scientific Director of the Singh Center for Nanotechnology.
Combining insights from the worlds of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemistry and materials science, Allen is a pioneer in the field of micro-electromechanical systems, or MEMS, and nanofabrication technology. His research allows the creation of structures, sensors and actuators that exploit the unique potential of the small scale. For example, such miniscule devices can sit at the intersection of the biological and the digital, sensing the physical and electrical signals found in the heart and in the brain and transmitting them to computers for processing. Allen has published approximately 120 journal articles and holds approximately 40 patents.
|Gyuseok Kim is the Director of Workforce Development at the Singh Center for Nanotechnology at the University of Pennsylvania. He manages the graduate student fellow (GSF) program that is designed to give Penn Master’s students hands-on processing experiences through the fabrication of devices in the cleanroom. He manages Nanotechnology Master’s degree program. He also runs various training and outreach programs for K-12, undergraduates, graduates, and underrepresented minorities (URM), such as the internship for the Community College of Philadelphia, NanoDay, and Semiconductor and Nanotechnology Initiatives at Penn (SNIP). He is an instructor of ESE 5360 and ESAP Nanotechnology courses. Prior to joining Singh Center, he worked at Penn as a postdoctoral fellow, at Samsung Electro-Mechanics as a senior engineer, and at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht in Germany as a research assistant. He received a Ph.D. from Grenoble INP in France, MS and BS from Seoul National University in South Korea.|
|Mohsen Azadi is a Principal Scientist at the Singh Center for Nanotechnology at the University of Pennsylvania. He is responsible for research support and process development for the internal and external users at QNF. Prior to joining Singh Center, he was a PhD student at University of Pennsylvania working on micro and nanofabrication of MEMS/NEMS devices for photophoretic flight, Direct Energy conversion applications, and interstellar flight. He served as a member of the Dean’s Advisory Board in the School of Engineering and Applied Science from Dec 2019 to July 2021.|
