"Southeastern Nanotechnology Infrastructure Corridor (SENIC): A Regional Research Resource!"

Speaker: Dr. Paul Joseph- Faculty - Principal Research Scientist
NNCI-SENIC-External User Coordinator
Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN) 
Georgia Institute of Technology -Atlanta, GA

The Southeastern Nanotechnology Infrastructure Corridor (SENIC) is one of 16 members of the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI), a network of academic user facilities serving the needs of nanoscale science, engineering, and technology by providing state-of-the-art equipment, staff expertise, and training resources. SENIC assists researchers with a broad range of micro and nanofabrication and characterization projects, such as nanostructures, nanoelectronics, MEMS, biological/ chemical sensors and systems, biomaterials, photonics, materials growth and synthesis. The presentation will provide an overview of NNCI and SENIC with a discussion of shared lab resources, external user services, and education/ training programs followed by time for Q & A. After the presentation, a SENIC representative will be available for consultations & networking. 

Paul J Joseph received his PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Madras, India in 1997. From 1994 to 1997, he was a Council of Scientific and Industrial Research - Senior Research Fellow at the Department of Physical Chemistry, University of Madras, where he has carried out extensive research work in the field of Phase Transfer Catalysis. From 1997 to 2000, he was a Visiting Scientist for the National Science Council of Taiwan. From 2001 to 2005, he was a Research Scientist at the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA. His research is focused towards the development of new sacrificial polymeric materials and its application in the fields of Microelectronics, Microfluidics, and Microelectromechanical Systems. In November 2005, he joined as a research faculty and NNIN biomedical engineering domain expert & research Coordinator at the Georgia Tech-Institute for Electronics & Nanotechnology (GT-IEN). His current research interests are in Nanobiotechnology, Bio- MEMS, and Biosensors’ application as Diagnostics and Detection Systems. Currently, Dr. Joseph is a Principal Research Scientist and is also serving as an external user coordinator at the GT-IEN. Dr. Joseph’s original research work overall resulted in 85 publications, reports, conference presentations, trade publications, and 7 awarded US and international patents.
