Dr. Mark Allen
Dr. Gyuseok Kim
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 a principal scientist at the Singh Center for Nanotechnology at the University of Pennsylvania. He manages the graduate student fellow program that provides masters students with nanofabrication experience. 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 his Ph.D from Grenoble INP in France in 2011. Dr. Kim received his BS and MS degrees in Material Science and Engineering from Seoul National University in South Korea in 2005 and 2007.|
|Gabe Unger is a full time researcher at The University of Pennsylvania where his research focuses on the design and characterization of micro and milli scale robots & devices for medical applications. He collaborates with several departments on campus including the School of Medicine, the GRASP Robotics Lab, and the Singh Center for Nanotechnology. Gabe received his MSE in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Pennsylvania, where he also completed a graduate student fellowship program (GSF) at the Singh Center for Nanotechnology in 2020. Prior to that he completed his Undergraduate studies in Forensic Science, Chemistry and Physics at the University of New Haven in 2018.|
