Nicholas A. Melosh received his B.S. in chemistry from Harvey Mudd College
in 1996. He did his graduate work on block-copolymer silica composites with Brad Chmelka
and Galen Stucky
at the University of California at Santa Barbara
, receiving a Ph.D in materials science and engineering in 2001. His postdoctoral training was on molecular electronics and nanoscale patterning with Jim Heath
at the University of
California, Los Angeles
and the California Institute of Technology
2001-2003. He joined Stanford University
as an assistant professor of materials science and engineering in September 2003.
Melosh's research interests include molecular electronics and plasmonics, diamondoids, dynamic self-assembly of biomolecules and lipid bilayers as nano-bio interfaces. He is a recipient of the NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award
the Frederick E. Terman Fellowship and the MDV Innovators
