Vinayak P. Dravid
Vinayak Dravid is a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University as well as Director of the Northwestern University Atomic and Nanoscale Characterization Center. His research is geared towards understanding and manipulating complex atomic and nanoscale features that dictate the properties and performance of materials. His research team is invesitgating the synthesis, patterning, and characterization of nanostructured materials along with involving itself in atomic-scale structure-property relationship for internal interfaces, domains and mosaics.
Dravid has a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Lehigh University.
