Dr. Bedewy is an Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh, starting Fall 2016. He was a Postdoctoral Associate at MIT in the area of bionanofabrication with Professor Karl Berggren (2014-2016). Before that, he was a Postdoc at the MIT Laboratory for Manufacturing and Productivity, working with Professor John Hart on in situ environmental TEM characterization of catalytic nanostructure synthesis and interactions (2013-2014). In 2013, he completed his PhD at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where he worked with Professor Hart on studying the population dynamics and the collective mechanochemical factors governing the growth and self-organization of nanofilaments. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Design and Production Engineering (honors) and a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, both from Cairo University (received in 2006 and 2009 respectively). Dr. Bedewy recently received the Robert A. Meyer Award from the American Carbon Society in 2016, the Richard and Eleanor Towner Prize for Distinguished Academic Achievement from the University of Michigan in 2014, and the Silver Award from the Materials Research Society (MRS) in 2013. His research interests include advanced manufacturing, nanofabrication, nanometrology and materials characterization, self-assembly of hierarchical nanostructures, engineering of biomolecular systems, and precision design.
