Paschalis Alexandridis is Professor of Chemical Engineering in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University at Buffalo\nThe State University of New York (SUNY). He received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1994 and was a\nPostdoctoral Fellow in Polymer Physical Chemistry at Lund University, 1994-1996. His research aims to capitalize on self-assembly afforded by amphiphiles and directed assembly imposed by external fields for the (i) fundamental elucidation of interactions and structure in supramolecular assemblies, (ii) formulation of nanostructured polymer-particle dispersions with desired properties, (iii) surface modification and organization of colloidal particles, and (iv) preparation and utilization of ordered templates for nanomaterials synthesis.
