Associate Professor, Department of Physics

Dr. Matthew Martin earned his PhD in Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in 2010. He followed his degree with a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD, USA.

His research focuses on the synthesis and self-assembly of nanoparticles and methods to control their geometry, charge, and surface coatings to create new materials for biomedical and electronics applications. An expert in nanoparticle self-assembly and synthesis, he explores new ways to measure and control both individual particles and self-assembled structures.
