Paul F. Nealey
University of Chicago, USA
Paul F. Nealey is currently the Brady W. Dougan Family Professor in Molecular Engineering at the Institute for Molecular Engineering of the University of Chicago, and a Senior Scientist at Argonne National laboratory. His research interests include directed self-assembly for nanofabrication and nanomanufacturing in two and three-dimensions, high resolution lithography, dimension dependent material properties of nanoscopic macromolecular systems, and quantitative three-dimensional characterization of the structure of soft materials. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a fellow of the American Physical Society, and has received the National Science Foundation Career Award, the Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award, the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Forum Award from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the Arthur K. Doolittle Award from the American Chemical Society, the 2015 Intel Outstanding Researcher Award in Patterning, the 2016 Semiconductor Industry Association—Semiconductor Research Corporation University Researcher Award, and the Outstanding Research Award from the Society of Photopolymer Science and Technology. He was also the Founding Director of the National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center in Templated Synthesis and Assembly at the Nanoscale.
