QBE Seminar Series: “Harnessing Chaos: Rational Design of Surfaces for Cavitation-Based Imaging Agents, Nanomotors, and Protein Therapeutics”
September 22, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amComplimentary
QBE Seminar Series presents: Dr. Andrew P. Goodwin, Associate Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering with CU Boulder, and founder of the Goodwin Research Group.
Cavitation events, or the formation of a gas pocket in a liquid medium, can be highly destructive and disruptive. We have sought to understand how surfaces can facilitate or inhibit cavitation by examining the structure-property relationships that give rise to efficient bubble nucleation. These approaches in turn underlie our new technologies in imaging, therapy, and protective coatings.
Andrew received a B.A. in Chemistry from Columbia University his PhD in Chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley, and he performed postdoctoral research at both Stanford University and the University of California, San Diego. Currently, his research interests include stimulus-responsive colloids and assemblies, engineering polymer and oxide interfaces for controlled interactions with fluids, new bioconjugation chemistries, and the interplay between mechanical stimulus and polymer structures. To date, he has published >45 peer reviewed papers as an independent investigator and has received an NIH New Innovator Award, an NIH Pathway to Independence Award, and a DOD Breast Cancer Postdoctoral Fellowship.
Open to Mines students, faculty, and staff.
