 Presenter:  Dr. Nathan Jackson, UNM Mechanical Engineering Department

Nathan Jackson is an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at UNM. He received his Ph.D in Biomedical Engineering from Arizona State University. Prior to UNM he worked at a microelectronics research institute (Tyndall National Institute) located in Cork, Ireland as a Senior Researcher and head of the PiezoMEMS team. His research interests are in the area of MEMS, BioMEMS, piezoelectrics, smart materials, neural interfaces, and flexible/stretchable circuits. He has developed MEMS devices for vibration energy harvesters, particle sensors, atomizers, acoustic resonators, robotics, tactile sensors, and ultrasound transducers. He a technical committee member for IEEE MEMS, SPIE Microtechnologies, E-MRS, and IEEE NANO conferences. He is a senior member of IEEE and has published more than 60 peer reviewed journal publications focused on MEMS and functional materials. He has 10 patents licensed to various companies, and he was a finalist for inventor of the year in Ireland in 2016.

Robert L. Opila received a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Chicago. He then joined Bell Laboratories, where he studied the role of surfaces and interfaces in electronic and photonic materials and devices. He was named Distinguished Member of Technical Staff and promoted to Technical Supervisor. Since 2002, he has been with the Materials Science Department at the University of Delaware, where his research now includes photovoltaic and thermoelectric materials as well as semiconductor processing. Opila also has appointments in the Departments of Electrical Engineering and Chemistry.


Dr. Opila is a Fellow of the American Vacuum Society and an editor of Applied Surface Science. He has completed terms as Fulbright Fellow at Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey, and as Visiting Professorial Fellow at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. In 2015-16 he served as president of the faculty senate at the University of Delaware. Opila is currently an IPA program director of the Electronic and Photonic Materials Program, in the Division of Materials Science at the National Science Foundation.
