Posted by on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 in News.


Clare McCabe

McCabe is a professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, associate dean of Vanderbilt’s graduate school and director of Postdoctoral Affairs. She uses molecular modeling to understand the thermodynamic and transport properties of complex fluids, nanomaterials and biological systems.

Current projects including developing novel lubricants for nano-scale devices, understanding the self-assembly of skin lipids, and developing theoretical tools to understand how to control the dispersion and aggregation of nanoparticle-based systems. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the AIChE CoMSEF Impact Award.

Sharon Weiss

Weiss is a professor of electrical engineering and deputy director of the Vanderbilt Institute of Nanoscale Science and Engineering. She is a pioneer in studying the interaction of light with nanomaterials and has earned an international reputation for expanding the use of silicon in photonics and optoelectronics.

Weiss also is recognized as the leading expert in designing and demonstrating highly sensitive porous silicon guided-wave optical biosensors. This work has led to applications in many fields, most notably communication.

She is the recipient of a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award, and she is an inaugural Vanderbilt Chancellor Faculty Fellow.
